Item description

Here for your delectation is the SPECTACULAR RARE----------GIDEON'S NIGHT by J.J. Marric. J.J. Marric was derived from (a) Creasey's own initial (b) the middle initial of his second wife, Evelyn Jean) and (c) the forenames of his sons Martin and Richard. Gideon gave Creasey a large measure of critical acclaim. He pioneered the British police procedural novel as we know it today (Wexford, Morse, Resnick, etc.), the year before Ed McBain's 87th Precinct did the same thing for American crime fiction. The late Julian Symons recognised this achievement: The portrait of Gideon is an attempt to show a fully rounded character, excellent up to a point but marred in the end by excessive hero-worship, and lack of humour. Apart from Gideon the strengths of the books are those of other Creasey work, an apparently inexhaustible flow of ideas and the ability to generate excitement in describing action. You are bidding on the stated Coronet Printing from 1980. The book is in positively excellent condition. There are no rips, tears, markings, etc.---and the pages and binding are tight as a drum (see photo). Check my feedback to see that I sell exactly as I describe. . Paypal is an acceptable alternative. I will ship internationally for additional charges. So bid soon and often for this magnificent, impossible-to-find MYSTERY COLLECTIBLE. WANT TO SEE MORE??
