Many people consider Creasey's GIDEON series his best work. I agree with your assessment that Gideon feels a oneness with London and strives to protect it.

It's probably true the Gideon books are better than the others, George. I really enjoyed those "Toff" books when I was a youngster, but I'm not sure I would now.

I've only read the Dr. Palfrey books by Creasey. In doing so I discovered his secret for being so prolific. He recycled his plots!

I have a handful of Gideon books and I ought to see how Creasey differs when he's writing as himself, so to speak.
