Hazard On The Loose:
A dangerous prisoner breaks out of jail and a succession of murders follow that he may or may not have had a hand in.
The Dreamless Sleep:

When a sinister monster is repeatedly seen in a Scottish loch, to terrify the local people and to increase tourist numbers, there are two private detectives who suspect that the creature isn't quite what it seems to be.
The Department Of Social Harmony:
A brilliant academic becomes the minister of a new social department in a radical, reforming government. He initiates a whole series of sweeping reforms that effectively abolish crime as a social phenomenon.
