"Crime is going up again, said Gideon of the Yard. It's practically back to where it was in the bad days just after the war, & it's likely to get worse before it gets better. I don't think it'll get better unless we can put on some extra men. I'd tell the Home Office that they can get ready for the biggest crime wave London's had since 1839, & as things stand now there isn't a thing we can do about it..." Size: 180mm - 250mm. 190 pages.
