Hardback. This UK edition has new material and revisions. The author takes the reader behind the scenes in the Police headquarters, not only of the UK, but also in the United States, France, and Canada. He features the ceaseless fight against crime of every description, including espionage, being waged by Scotland Yard, the FBI, the Mounties, and the Surete. You will read of the, at the time, ingenious devices that had been invented to aid in this fight; such as the secret window through which the FBI watched suspects in the next room, while the spies, thinking this was merely a mirror on the wall, were unaware of being seen. Also includes the important work done in the criminal investigation laboratories, how the fingerprint system works, and how the police force in each country started in a small way and gradually evolved to its 'current' standard of efficiency. Illus. by Vincent Fodera, + Bibliog. and Index. 191pp. 8vo. h/back. From the library of true crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. Vg+ in sl. sunned Vg. pcdw.
