Four heads of state are to meet in London. The usual suspects will be out on the streets attempting to con, or rob, spectators. But this is not the major problem faced by Scotland Yard’s finest, Commander George Gideon. It is known that assassins are planning the murder of at least some of the visiting notables, plus anyone else who gets in the way. Gideon’s mission is to do just that!


The character made famous by JJ Marric, Commander George Gideon, of the Yard is rapidly becoming one of the great men of detective fiction.

Yorkshire Evening New

There is something so engagingly human about Commander Gideon that we feel we know and love him and enjoy his adventures even though they are sometimes on the far borders of probability. Gideon represents an ingenious device on the part of Mr. Marric, since he personifies the British policeman as he ought to be.
