Hardback. 1st US Edn. An American scandal 1912-1915. It had long been taken for granted that Lt. Charles Becker, a notoriously corrupt and brutal member of a police force abundant in those qualities, was guilty of the murder of small-time criminal Herman Rosenthal in the late evening of July 15, 1912. However, the author reveals convincing evidence that Becker was innocent beyond a reasonable doubt. An anti-semitic Dreyfus, a bully-boy Vanzetti, an ungentle grafter, a repulsive fall-guy, and the only American police officer ever to be executed for a capital crime. Illus. + Map and Index. 346pp. lge. 8vo. Nr. F. in protected Vg+ dw. A fairly heavy book which will require additional postage if shipped overseas.
