Extortion is the name of the game and the method is to murder anyone who might get in the way. The Dreem factory and much else is at stake. Inspector West has to unravel it all at gun point, but not without difficulty and surprise...
'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 Creasey is an inspiration to the aspiring but as yet unpublished author.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.

"classic 1940's who dunnit"
This is slightly dated but a good attention gripping story. Almost a mixture of Paul Temple, Dixon of Dock Green and Foyles war. If you want some action with a twist of a who dunnit then this is the kind of thing for you. Just remember that these stories are very much of the 1940's and 1950's and some attitudes may have changed
