255 pp. Slang glossary at rear, some of which remain in the popular lexicon, some not. Classic noir flavor.

"There are rackets and rackets, some semi-legitimate and sage from official interference. The great amjority however come under the legal classification of larceny with the inevitable vacation 'Up the river' generally following a fall where the rap will stand up. To the racketeer, every racket is on the up and up. The greatest sin is to be nailed with the goods. The prospect of petty larceny rap doesn't bother a bird hot after a high score, for history proves that a sucker seldom squawks after going the route."    [Book ID # 1940]
