Product Description

Sir Hugh Green, who has long been a keen collector of early detective fiction, has assembled stories by some of the leading authors of the period. In the best of them, the London of the time comes alive. The action takes place in real streets, resounding to the clatter of horse’s hoofs; the characters are concerned with petty crime, with small seedy businesses in back streets in the City and off the Strand; the dividing line between crook and detective is a narrow one.
