Play for Murder

(1946)
A novel by

 
The show must go on' even in a world of cynicism, vice, blackmail and murder. Jim Kendall, a man much more suited to the quiet life in the country finds himself drawn into an unfamiliar world when he receives a disturbing letter from an old friend in London, the quiet country man must now face the bright lights and dangerous characters of the big city where under the lurid neon lights of Soho's theatre land there's evil being played out.

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; Norman Deane, Michael Halliday, Jeremy York, Gordon Ashe, JJ Maric and Anthony Morton.

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.
