KIRKUS REVIEW

From up-state New York the author came in answer to Police Commissioner Roosevalt's plea for young men to be trained as policemen, and for 36 years has worked, under changing administrations, in the homicide department in New York and Queens Borough. Here are the facts and findings of true mystery cases, some brought to book, others dropped and some never solved. Comparable to the experiences of Thompson of Scotland Yard, in presenting authentic cases with a complete departmental background. Interesting for the New Yorker, and those interested in real-life mysteries.
