(1942)
(The eighth book in the Patrick Dawlish series)
A novel by

 
A cryptic message from Colonel Cranton summons Captain Patrick Dawlish and his allies Tim Jeremy, Ted Beresford and fiancé Felicity to Salisbury for a urgent meeting but one that Cranton would never reach as he is involved a mysterious car crash on the way. Was it an accident or an attempt to silence him forever? With the Colonel laying seriously ill Dawlish is thrust into action and into a dangerous chase through a maze of murder, blackmail and espionage to discover the solution to the riddle of Cranton's message and to uncover the secret organisation behind it all.

Fiction maestro John Creasey ( 1908 - 1973 ) was and remains an enigma. He was one of the biggest selling and (by most measures) the most prolific producer of fiction, of the 20th century, writing over 620 novels in both his own name and through over 25 different pseudonyms including; Gordon Ashe, Michael Halliday, Jeremy York, Norman Deane, Anthony Morton and JJ Maric.

Creasey's popularity is as staggering as his output with book sales approaching 100 million copies across 29 languages in over 100 countries. At the peak of his commercial success Creasey was selling 4 million books a year in the UK and USA alone. Protagonists such as Gideon of Scotland Yard, The Baron and The Toff are lynchpins of British post war crime fiction, and several Creasey works were adapted for TV and film.
