A couple from the 70s and another new-to-me author - N.J. Crisp
Not an author I had previously heard of until a recent charity shop find. I do like old 70s crime fiction.

The Gotland Deal (1976)
of a prostitute in Notting Hill...
of a Foreign Office girl convinced she's ebing watched by the KGB...
by bombing of a young policeman...
of a Nazi revival in Germany...
For Detective Inspector Kenyon these apparently unrelated events hold the key to a conspiracy that threatens the balance of East/West detente, and lead to an electrifying climax in the pine forests of a remote island off the coast of Sweden.
"Intriguing plot.... high espionage and a riveting chase."

A child molester, badly beaten and drowned in a blocked-up lavatory basin; a nightclub boss,

From the glittering roulette tables of the West End clubs, where fortunes and lives are won and Lost, to the bleak wasteland of the Essex marshes, every amn is his enemy, every enemy has a hand in
THE LONDON DEAL
