Written under the pseudonym 'J. J. Marric', John Creasy won the MWA Edgar award for Best Novel in 1962 for this story.
It follows a few days in the life of Gideon, and to me reads more like a crime, police procedural. We also get to glimpse a cross section of the crims his Section in ScotlandYard is following.
It is an interesting take on the early 1960's and very well read by Hugh Kermode.
In future when I am looking for an entertaing crime fiction story I expect I will try a few more in this Series.
Some of the crimes are anything but friendly or funny and, there is light humour and humanity as Gideon keeps up the pace in difficult times.
Maybe a fireside or beach listen
