Gideon's Day is the first in a series of police procedural novels by John Creasey writing as J.J. Marric. Published in 1955, it features a day in the professional life of Detective Superintendent George Gideon of the C.I.D., Scotland Yard. In later books in the series, Gideon has been promoted to the rank of C.I.D. Commander.
Gideon’s Day follows senior Superintendent George ‘Gee-Gee’ Gideon of Scotland Yard through one day of his 20-year career, during which a dozen different problems beset him and his men at Scotland Yard. C.I.D. Superintendent George Gideon is furious when he finds out that one of his detectives has accepted bribes. The consequences of confronting him spin out through the day. Other cases that Gideon deals with during the day include hunting for a child's killer and a jewel thief, solving a series of mail van robberies, and trying to find out who killed an old woman in a sweet-shop.
