Review of "Gideon's Day - J.J. Marric"
"Gideon's Day" by J.J. Marric is sold as part of the Gideon Omnibus, a collection of fictional stories about a Scotland Yard senior superintendent of enormous stature and presence, from the mid-fifties. The tales are skilfully written with an effortlessly readable metre. If you are after a gritty, police detective novel then I would advise you to look elsewhere. The appeal of "Gideon's Day" lies in its ability to be so unpretentious. It is not poetry, nor a political statement, nor an exposé on all that is 'wrong with the police', nor an attempt to shock the reader. No! It is simply a fast paced, entertaining, but believable novel, by an author who realises that in writing, as in any business, you only succeed by giving the public what they want.
