Hardback. Out of the crime-filled nights of the Roaring Twenties comes this amazing story of a famous policeman who dared to defy the all-powerful alliance of crime and corrupt politics - the story of a cop who dared to enforce Prohibition Laws, whose eyes were opened to the sordid side of big-city life working in the vice squads, manhandling petty hoodlums in the jungle of the Lower East Side. McAllister's courage and uncompromising principles naturally won him the undying hatred of racketeers and dishonest politicans alike. Falsely charged with malfeasance, perjury and later with murder, he all but lost his freedom and his very life. During the 4 mths awaiting trial in the infamous Tombs prison, he underwent a horrifying purgatory that defies description. Here then, is the story, the inside and unvarnished story, of what it was like to be a cop in New York over 30yrs. - a forthright and fearless account of Police Department and political scandals over that period. 256pp. 8vo. From the library of true crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. Nr. F. in vg+ dw.
