KIRKUS REVIEW

Anslinger, long America's Narcotics Commissioner, knows a great deal about crime detection. The stories he is able to divulge are interesting and emotionally satisfying because the lines are clearly drawn between the good guys and the bad guys even though the good guys don't always win conclusive, enduring victories. This is a liversified chronicle of episodes from the history of the various law enforcement agencies under the Treasury Department: the Alcohol and Tax Division, Narcotics Control, The Secret Service and others. After a number of matter of fact references to Anslinger's knowledge of the Mafia before the days when it was popular to acknowledge the existence of that organization, he cites contributions being made by the Attorney General to oust crime syndicates from the land.
