Crime City by Joseph O’Neill

Historian Joseph O'Neill has recreated the sights, sounds and smells of a lost milieu in all its fascinating detail. Here are true stories of the legendary detective Jerome Caminada, the super-criminal Charlie Peace, street gangs like the Bengal Tigers and myriad characters like One-Armed Dick, the infamous fence, set in the gin palaces, dance halls and cheap brothels that were as much a part of Manchester as the giant cotton mills. O'Neill is a longstanding contributor to historical publications and to True Detective, True Murder and Master Detective.
