Malcolm Gossett is a Scotland Yard detective who leaves the force to become private detective. He uses his connections at the Yard, who still view him with respect, to help him solve crimes and get access to areas he otherwise wouldn’t get to. He is drawn into political situations and is eventually knighted. He is a clever investigator and approaches problems in a straight-forward manner.
