Hardback. The bulk of this material appeared in the columns of 'The Star' newspaper. For more than a month, the famous author of thrillers, probed the mysteries of the real world of crime, to write the great human story of the underworld life of London. He describes unbelievable scenes that he witnessed during his tour of investigation. He tells of meetings with dope and white-slave traffickers, blackmailers, underground night-clubs, old lags and new hands, car robbers, and crime specialists of all kinds. You are brought face to face with a section of humanity in which vice, passion and crime are the forces of existence. Sometimes the setting is in the dark shadows of a slum alley, sometimes it is behind the glittering lights of a West-End thoroughfare. The scenes change, but the dramas go on. 220pp. 8vo. h/back. Lightly browned edges,, sl. faded sp., lightly marked covers. Vg.
