A British baron's passionate sidelines are a deadly business. A gang of ingenious car theives uses a most provocative bait to lure young men into crime. A teenager becomes a killer's target when she witnesses the murder of one of the Yard's chief informers. Just another day on the job for Inspector Gideon of Scotland Yard.
'The King of Crime' wrote an astonishing number of crime and mystery books, selling more than 80 million copies worldwide in 28 languages over five decades. His most famous characters include The Baron, Inspector West, and Gideon. The Creasey Dagger is the UK's top award for first time crime novelists with winners including Patricia Cornwell and Minette Walters.
Creasey is an inspiration to the aspiring but as yet unpublished author. He had 743 rejection slips before his first book was accepted. He never stopped believing in himself and he never gave up. He wasn't afraid to take risks either - writing under 10 different names and changing styles with each character.
