9780099598206: The Dust and the Heat

Oliver Nugent is a young Armoured Corps officer in the year 1945. Taking on a near derelict pharmaceutical firm, he determines to rebuild it and make it a success. He encounters some ruthless opposition, and counteracts with some fairly unscrupulous methods of his own. It seems no one is above blackmail and all is deemed fair in big business battles. Then a threat: apparently from German sources it alludes to a time when Oliver was in charge of an SS camp, jeopardizing his company and all that he has worked for. 'Mr Gilbert is a first-rate storyteller' - The Guardian

Michael Francis Gilbert was born in Lincolnshire in 1912. He attended the University of London where he gained an LLB with honours in 1937.

After the war Gilbert worked as a solicitor in London, during which time he found himself legal adviser to Raymond Chandler. In 1980 Gilbert was knighted as a Commander of the Order of the British Empire. A founding member of the British Crime Writers association, in 1988 he was named a Grand Master by the Mystery Writers of America and received the Lifetime Anthony Achievement award at the 1990 Boucheron in London.
