Good in Fair dj [book well-worn all around, bumped corners, paper-covered boards frayed at top of spine; jacket similarly worn, missing top 1-1/2" of spine, 1-1/2" x 2" section of surface peeled away on front panel]. The author's second novel, "a grim, sardonic story of London's underworld, of gang rivalry for control of such profitable enterprises as dope-peddling, the dogs, and 'protection.' [The author] takes the reader to police headquarters, to a gang ruler's trial, to barrooms and nightclubs, into hoodlums' conferences, and into the night streets of London where violence flames suddenly. These vivid scenes compose a realistic picture of the jungle in a great city; they tell an exciting story; and they create an arresting portrait of the woman called Blondie Iscariot."
