Description

The first title in ibooks' series of classic mysteries by Gerald Kersh. Harry Fabian has a dream to become the top wrestling promoter in London, but he has a problem: he needs money. Not too much - only one hundred pounds, but it might as well be a million because he needs the money by the end of the week. Hunting for victims to blackmail and con out of money, Fabian moves through the clip joints, jazz clubs, wrestling gyms, bottle bars, and all-night cafes of 1930s London, spiralling further and further into the depths of immorality and depravity.

About Gerald Kersh

Gerald Kersh (1911-1968) was born in Teddington-on-Thames, London and died penniless as an American citizen in Kingston, New York. He wrote over 1,000 articles, 400 short stories, and 19 novels. His account of infantry training They Die With Their Boots Clean (1941), became an instant best-seller during World War Two, and launched Kersh on a glittering career. Tax, health and personal problems in later life did not prevent Kersh from writing forgotten masterpieces like Prelude To A Certain Midnight (1947), Fowlers End (1957), The Implacable Hunter (1961) And The Angel And The Cuckoo (1966)
