Gideon of Scotland Yard

This is the book on which the film Gdeon of Scotland Yard was based. Great idea of a day in the life of a policeman. very evocative of 1950's London. If you enjoy the film you will like tge book. Narrator keeps the pace going well and the use of different character voices is well done. Be aware that this is about the 1950,s so you do get the occassional reference to people with yellow skin.
