Invitation to Adventure

(1945)
(Book 13 in the Patrick Dawlish series)
A novel by

 
The man was clearly a maniac thought Patrick Dawlish; ruthless, determined, demented, a seemingly generous friend able to turn on those very same friends and betray them in an instant with no regret or remote. This was a man, that with the slightest gesture could destroy the house they were in, killing himself and all of those Dawlish had come to save and he knew that this man, this monster, wouldn't hesitate for a second. For the first time Patrick Dawlish knew what it was like to be powerless and at the mercy of a ruthless and psychotic enemy.

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.
