A surprisingly topical non-fiction account of the murder that came to symbolise the crimewave threatening to overwhelm post-war London. It is the untold story of a Soho robbery and shooting carried out by a 17 year old and his two young accomplices. Much of the worldwide press reaction at the time focussed on the breakdown of law and order, rising youth crime, the spread of illegal firearms and the deterrent value of capital punishment - concerns that are frequently echoed today.
