Hardback. 1st US edn. The author tells the inside stories of a score of criminals who cases he handled as a parole officer. He dealt with all types of criminals, great and small - murderers, drug-peddlers, sex criminals, thieves, safe-crackers, swindlers, etc. There was the unfortunate little kleptomaniac who was incurable and there were the headliners, such as "Lucky" Luciano, the "con" who figured in the "unsolved" Tresca murder case, Whitney, Poderzaj and a host of others. One thing they all had in common, was the fact they had all served long sentences, all had been very anxious to get out of jail and all were determined to stay out, if possible! 238pp. 8vo. h/back. Vg in frayed and chipped G. only dw.
