Read full description of the books The Doors Open:Life had been good for Paddy Yeatman-Carter. First-class Rugby and good beer at eightpence a pint before the war; during the war, command of the finest regiment in the British Army. But peace-time life as a clerk was more than a bit dim--until he saw an attempted suicide and decided to intervene. That act of good nature cost him his job and plunged him into the deepest intrigues of the City, where he and his friends walked in the shadow of death.
Read information about the authorLibrarian Note: There is more than one author in the Goodreads database with this name.
Born in Lincolnshire in 1912, Michael Francis Gilbert was educated in Sussex before entering the University of London where he gained an LLB with honours in 1937. Gilbert was a founding member of the British Crime Writers Association, and in 1988 he was named a Grand Master by the Mystery Writers of America - an achievement many thought long overdue. He won the Life Achievement Anthony Award at the 1990 Boucheron in London, and in 1980 he was knighted as a Commander in the Order of the British Empire. Gilbert made his debut in 1947 with Close Quarters, and since then has become recognized as one of our most versatile British mystery writers.
He was the father of Harriett Gilbert.
