A commando runs amok in a London street and it takes the Toff to discover that this is not as random an act as it may appear. At six o'clock on a dark January evening a man in battle fatigues strides up Chiswick High Road, barging people out of his way, until a car pulls in and brushes against him. The driver apologises but the commando has already drawn his gun and fires. Hon Richard Rollison, the Toff, goes to work in his inimitable style.
'The King of Crime' wrote an astonishing number of crime and mystery books, selling more than 80 million copies worldwide in 28 languages over five decades. His most famous characters include The Baron, Inspector West, and Gideon. The Creasey Dagger is the UK's top award for first time crime novelists with winners including Patricia Cornwell and Minette Walters. Creasey is an inspiration to the aspiring but as yet unpublished author. He had 743 rejection slips before his first book was accepted. He never stopped believing in himself and he never gave up. He wasn't afraid to take risks either - writing under 10 different names and changing styles with each character.
