Hardback. The author was the crime correspondent of 'The People' newspaper and regarded London as the wickedest city in the world. Although he was on friendly terms with all Scotland Yard's top detectives, the gangsters from the underworld trusted him. They told him things they wouldn't dare whisper to the police or even their own lawyers, and he always respected their confidence. In this book he deals with important events behind the scenes of most of the major crimes committed in Britain since WW2. He tells some of the secrets of the underworld : how was Stanley Setty murdered? Why did Daniel Raven murder his wife's parents? Few people knew that Haigh had a legal wife living when he murdered 6 people. How were the Messina Gang allowed to control Britain's biggest vice ring for 17-yrs? Also includes Neville Heath, the Cleft-chin Murder and the Antiquis case. Illus. 224pp. 8vo. h/back. Lightly browned edges o/w Vg. no dw. Becoming scarce.
