Michael Gilbert Books Overview

The Doors Open

One night on a commuter train, Paddy Yeatman Carter sees a man attempting suicide. Intervening, he prevents the man from going through with it. However, the very next day the same man is found dead, and Paddy believes the circumstances to be extremely suspicious. Roping in his friend and lawyer, Nap Rumbold, he determines to discover the truth. They become increasingly suspicious of the dead man’s employers: the Stalagmite Insurance Company, who appear to hire some very dangerous staff. A well written, cleverly constructed story which combines the unexpected with much suspicion and dirty work. Birmingham Mail

Blood And Judgement

When the wife of a recently escaped prisoner is found murdered and partially buried near a reservoir, Patrick Petrella, a Metropolitan Police Inspector, is called in. Suspicion falls on the escaped convict, but what could have been his motive? Petrella meets resistance from top detectives at the Yard who would prefer to keep the inspector out of the limelight, but he is determined to solve the mystery with or without their approval. ‘Usual fine job, with nice writing, humour. Praise Allah, a detective story – Saturday Review

Roller-Coaster

Patrick Petrella takes on a child pornography ring that operates in London and Amsterdam and two vicious and murderous Dockland gangs, one white and one West Indian. The author also wrote ‘Mr Calder and Mr Behrens’, ‘Gold and Blood’, ‘Young Petrella’, ‘Smallbone Deceased’ and ‘Paint’.

Over and Out

Luke Pagan is assigned to a perilous assignm ent which takes him and his disreputable side kick, Joe Narr abone, to the brink of disaster. ‘

After The Fine Weather

When Laura Hart travels to Austria to visit her brother, vice consul of Lienz in the Tyrol, she briefly meets an American who warns her of the mounting political tension. Neo Nazis are stirring trouble in the province, and xenophobia is rife between the Austrians who control the area and the Italian locals. Then Laura experiences the troubles first hand, a shocking incident that suggests Hofrat Humbold, leader of the Lienz government is using some heavy handed tactics. Somewhat unsurprisingly, he is unwilling to let one little English girl destroy his plans for the largest Nazi move since the war, and Laura makes a dangerous enemy. Mr Gilbert’s story is persuasively written, with a lively sense of the kind of people and country he has chosen The Times Literary Supplement

The Crack In The Teacup

At first sight, Barhaven a city only an hour outside London seems an unlikely place where members of the city council could hope to line their pockets at the expense of their fellow citizens. But there is certainly some odd goings on afoot. A young solicitor soon finds himself involved in a major campaign against racketeering.

The Dust and the Heat / Overdrive

Oliver Nugent is a young Armoured Corps officer in the year 1945. Taking on a near derelict pharmaceutical firm, he determines to rebuild it and make it a success. He encounters some ruthless opposition, and counteracts with some fairly unscrupulous methods of his own. It seems no one is above blackmail and all is deemed fair in big business battles. Then a threat: apparently from German sources it alludes to a time when Oliver was in charge of an SS camp, jeopardizing his company and all that he has worked for. ‘Mr Gilbert is a first rate storyteller’ The Guardian

The Etruscan Net / The Family Tomb

Robert Broke runs a small gallery on the Via de Benci and is an authority on Etruscan terracotta. A man who keeps himself to himself, he is the last person to become mixed up in anything risky. But when two men arrive in Florence, Broke’s world turns upside down as he becomes involved in a ring of spies, the mafiosi and fraud involving Etruscan antiques. When he finds himself in prison on a charge of manslaughter, the net appears to be closing in rapidly, and Broke must fight for his innocence and his life. Neat plotting, impeccable expertise and the usual shapeliness combine to make this one of Mr Gilbert s best. The Sunday Times

The Ninety Second Tiger

The 92nd episode about the Tiger would be ve ry different. Asked by a Middle East potentate to advise on military matters, Hugo Greest flew east and found himself ca ught up in a blood thinning serial that could only end in de ath for some people. ‘

Flashpoint

Will Dylan is an electoral favourite intelligent, sharp and good looking, he is the government’s new golden boy. Jonas Killey is a small time solicitor determined, uncompromising and obsessed, he is hounding Dylan in the hope of bringing him into disrepute. Believing he has information that can connect Dylan with an illegal procedure during a trade union merger, he starts to spread the word, provoking a top level fluttering. At the crucial time of a general election, no government can afford bad press. Jonas suddenly finds himself pursued by those who want to keep him quiet, but he is determined that the truth will be heard.

Night Of The Twelfth

Two children have been murdered. When a third is discovered the tortured body of ten year old Ted Lister the Home Counties police are compelled to escalate their search for the killer, and Operation Huntsman is intensified. Meanwhile, a new master arrives at Trenchard House School. Kenneth Manifold, a man with a penchant for discipline, keeps a close eye on the boys, particularly Jared Sacher, son of the Israeli ambassador. One of the best detective writers to appear?since the war. BBC

The Man Who Hated Banks

Published in honour of the fiftieth anniversary of Michael Gilbert’s first book, The Man Who Hated Banks and Other Mysteries gather together eighteen previously uncollected stories about Gilbert’s most popular sleuths: seven about Inspector Hazlerigg, five about solicitor Henry Montacute Bohun, three about former copper Bill Mercer, and three about Inspector Patrick Petrella. Gilbert’s tales range from Scotland Yard police procedurals to classic country house mysteries, action packed thrillers, and tales of the seamy side of London life. In all of them, Gilbert displays his seemingly effortless characterization, his use of authentic detail, and, above all, his ability to engage the reader from the first sentence. It is a rare perhaps, non existent reader who can put down a Michael Gilbert story before finishing it.

The Curious Conspiracy And Other Crimes

A MASTER STORYTELLER To recognize the year of Michael Gilbert’s ninetieth birthday, Crippen & Landru is proud to publish this new collection of stories. The Curious Conspiracy And Other Crimes gathers together twenty previously uncollected stories including almost unknown tales about Inspectors Hazlerigg and Petrella, and stories of blackmail, murder, and revenge. The settings range from elegant but dangerous wine cellars in France and England, to a soundproofed room inhabited by a dictator, to early nineteenth century Spain, to a deadly shooting range. The Encyclopedia of Mystery and Detection describes Gilbert as ‘one of the finest of the post World War II generation of detective story writers.’ One of the master storytellers of our times, Gilbert displays his seemingly effortless characterization, his use of authentic detail, and, above all, his ability to engage the reader from the first sentence. The Mystery Writers of America recognized Gilbert’s contributions with its highest honor, the Grand Master Award. The introduction is by the author, and the cover design by Deborah Miller. FIRST BOOK EDITION

The Great Impersonation (By:E. Phillips Oppenheim)

Purchase of this book includes free trial access to www. million books. com where you can read more than a million books for free. This is an OCR edition with typos. Excerpt from book: CHAPTER III Mr. John Lambert Mangan of Lincoln’s Inn gazed at the card which a junior clerk had just presented in blank astonishment, an astonishment which became speedily blended with dismay. ‘Good God, do you see this, Harrison?’ he exclaimed, passing it over to his manager, with whom he had been in consultation. ‘ Dominey Sir Everard Dominey back here in England! ‘ The head clerk glanced at the narrow piece of pasteboard and sighed. ‘ I’m afraid you will find him rather a troublesome client, sir,’ he remarked. His employer frowned. ‘ Of course I shall,’ he answered testily. ‘ There isn’t an extra penny to be had out of the estates you know that, Harrison. The last two quarters’ allowance which we sent to Africa came out of the timber. Why the mischief didn’t he stay where he was! ‘ ‘What shall I tell the gentleman, sir?’ the boy enquired. ‘ Oh, show him in!’ Mr. Mangan directed ill temperedly. ‘ I suppose I shall have to see him sooner or later. I’ll finish these affidavits after lunch, Harrison.’ The solicitor composed his features to welcome a client who, however troublesome his affairs had become, still represented a family who had been valued patrons of the firm for several generations. He was prepared to greet a seedy looking and degenerate individual, looking older than his years. Instead, he found himself extending his hand to one of the best turned out and handsomest men who had ever crossed the threshold of his not very inviting office. For a moment he stared at his visitor, speechless. Then certain points of familiarity the well shaped nose, the rather deep set grey eyes presented themselves. The surprise enabled him to infuse a little real heartiness into his welcome. ‘ My dear Sir Everard ! ‘ he exclaimed. ‘ This is a most unex…

The Poisoned Chocolates Case (By:Anthony Berkeley)

Sir Eustace is a cad of the first water, with a specialty in other men?s wives, and the list of people who might want to do him in could fill a London phone book. But which of them actually sent the chocolates with their nasty hidden payload? Scotland Yard is baffled. Enter the Crime Circle, a group of society intellectuals with a shared conviction in their ability to succeed where the police have failed. Eventually, each member will produce a tightly reasoned solution to the Case of the Poisoned Chocolates, but each of those solutions will identify a different murderer. First published in 1929, this is both a classic of the golden age of mystery fiction, and one of the great puzzle mysteries of all time.

The Murder of My Aunt (By:Richard Hull)

In this darkly comic, quite immoral masterwork, Edward is an effete, poor young man who has something in store for his only relative, his wealthy aunt. First published in 1934, this classic mystery is considered a masterpiece of the inverted detective story, in which it is known ‘whodunit.’ The question is ‘how will they catch ’em?’ Highly unpredictable, it contains one of the most surprising denouements in all of detective fiction.

Antidote to Venom (By:Freeman Wills Crofts)

In an English city zoo a murderer plans to use snake venom to kill an old professor, hoping to inherit a fortune. In this unusual detective story we are shown the planning of the crime. When Inspector French is called in to solve the mystery we learn how an ingenious murder has been committed and follow the actions of the guilty men.

Later, his mind a blank, his only defence was that he loved his wife far too much to hurt her…
‘A book to delight every puzzle suspense enthusiast’ The New York Times
