Plot Summary[edit]

George Gideon is looking forward to his day, but a dozen different problems beset him.

Scotland Yard C.I.D. George Gideon is looking forward to his day, but starts off on the wrong foot. Gideon gets a traffic-violation ticket from a young police officer. From there everything is turned upside down, and his day involves finding out that one of his most-trusted detectives has accepted bribes, he has to hunt down an escaped maniac murderer and track down a young girl suspected of one robbery, only to have to break up another one in a bank a while later. His not-so-typical long day ends when he arrives home and finds out that his daughter has a date with the policeman who gave him a ticket that same morning.[1]
