Michael Gilbert's crime classics reissued by British Library Publishing

Death in Captivity, Death Has Deep Roots and Smallbone Deceased have been re-published with stylish new covers in the British Library Crime Classics series. 

Michael Gilbert (1912–2006) wrote thrillers, police procedurals and espionage novels that rank among the highest and most varied achievements of British crime writing in the second half of the twentieth century. A founding member of the Crime Writers’ Association, Gilbert was for many years partner in a London law firm and drew on his knowledge of the law in writing his most acclaimed novel.
