Hardback. The author takes the reader behind the scenes of crime detection and describes the formidable machine which had been built up to defeat the criminal. He takes a number of famous cases and shows, step by step, how the crimes were solved. He deals with murderers, thieves, forgers and blackmailers; he introduces anarchists and would-be assassins; drug-traffickers and vice are unmasked. In a special chapter he shows how the police forces of the world co-operate in the ceaseless fight against crime. During the World War II the author was engaged on special intelligence and security work in Greece and in the Balkans, and was in close contact with the British police officers who were engaged in re-organising the Greek police on British lines. Many photographs, some of them taken at the scenes of actual crimes, help to make this an authoritative book. Illus. 180pp. 8vo. h/back. Lightly foxed o/w Vg+ in chipped and frayed G. only pcdw. A tad musty.
