Hardback. Between 1968 and 1972 the annual rate of bank robberies in the London area rose with alarming rapidity from 12 to 65 - that is, one every five days. Most of the robbers were armed; their raids were almost invariably carried out with violence or the threat of it; there had been some killings. The police seemed at a loss. Then in August 1972 Scotland Yard set up a Special Robbery Squad to combat the epidemic. This book tells the story of how the squad slowly came to grips with these dangerous gangs. In the process, it introduces some of the most ruthless figures of the London underworld, including Bertie Smalls. Featuring the 1970s bank robbers led by Bryan Turner. Illus., List of Raids, List of Characters + Index. 200pp. 8vo. h/back. Ex-lib. but covers are F. No pockets or dockets, just signs of label removal from fpd, and a couple of rubber stamps. Nr. Vg. in protected Vg. pcdw. Scarce.
