Hardback. Intro' by Judge Jonah J. Goldstein. Dramatic true-life criminal cases from the files of New York City's Probation Department brought vividly to life by a dedicated pioneer officer - "the conscience of the court." The author was a member of New York's first Probation Department and recalls the events that led to the founding of the department. The cases are retold in dramatic and suspenseful realism. Offenders range from hardened criminals to petty racketeers - people caught in the web of circumstance, others guilty of deliberate, premeditated crime. What motivates the offender to strike out against society? What lies beyond the arrest and conviction of the offender? The answers are here in this book - a vivid record of one of the most dedicated probation officers in the history of criminal rehabilitation. 203pp. 8vo. h/back. From the library of true crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. V. lightly browned edges, o/w Vg+ in sl. sunned Vg. dw.
