Hardback. The subject of this book was an international smuggler and murderer. The author was one of the first on the scene at Ealing in West London, when the Chesney murders (wife and mother-in-law) were discovered, and he followed the Chesney trail right through Europe to Tangier and Casablanca. Smuggling, blackmail and murder came easily to Chesney whose powerful personality, surface charm and daring exploits made him a legend in his lifetime. When the Scotland Yard Murder Squad began to close in, Chesney shot himself. Illus. 196pp. 8vo. h/back. V. lightly foxed and browned edges o/w Vg+ in sl. creased Vg. dw.
