About the Author

John Victor Turner came from Manchester, went to Warwick School, and worked on a local newspaper there before moving to Fleet Street, where he worked for the Press Association, Daily Mail, Financial Times and as a crime reporter on the Daily Herald. He wrote seven detective novels under his own name, published between 1932 and 1936, but also wrote as 'Nicholas Brady' and more famously 'David Hume', creating the UK's first 'hardboiled' detective series and as whom he was compared favourably to the great Edgar Wallace.


'A traditional detective story populated with men in high places who are not as honest as they should be... Well done, Detective Club, for unearthing this from obscurity and bringing it back for our enjoyment.' Noah Stewart

'One of the very few exponents of the art of the thud-and-blunder thriller who can stand comparison with the late Edgar Wallace, who can tell an ingenious, though still ingenuous story with the utmost economy of words, who has a racy, often horsey, humour, who knows the criminal classes backward and gaolward ... I, for one, guarantee to read from cover to cover his next forty books.' MORNING POST

'He knows his underworld inside out.' DOROTHY L. SAYERS in THE SUNDAY TIMES
