Hardback. The author kept note-books over a period of 30-yrs., jotting down vivid, living impressions of the caes 'yet this book is no mere recital of evidence. Rather it is a reconstruction from evidence, showing the modus operandi of wrongdoing, and giving incidents and happenings, some trifling yet interesting and humoursome, but mostly of graver import.' Chapter headings include : Money Snatching at Banks; Blackmailers; Jabez Balfour and Det.Insp. Froest; Oscar Wilde at Bow Street; Female Impersonators in the Dock; Suffragette Days; Bow Street Honours; The Confidence Trick; Bow Street in the Good Old Days + much more. 221pp. 12mo. Browned edges and eps, sl. sunned sp. Vg.
