More About This Book

Overview

For many years, rumours concerning the activities of an international criminal gang with a chain of contacts in every large European city had been noted at Scotland Yard. Then the rumours assumed the shape of fantastic facts, as the exploits of the gang became ever more outrageous and daring. From wide-scale dope running, to blackmail and spying and counter-spying for who paid most, to white-slave traffic-all came within the limitless scope of this amazing organisation.
At Scotland Yard, a special international department, the E Bureau, is set up to discover the mastermind behind the organisation. It quickly becomes dubbed the Dark Bureau, named after its charismatic and dynamic Chief, Algy Dark.
Although from time to time various agents and smaller fry are run to earth, they are terrified to reveal any information that might uncover the fabulous crime colossus behind everything- the grotesque and sinister man known only as "The Butterfly." Then the Butterfly's operations extend to London, and the fat really hits the fire with the disappearance and kidnapping of Tod Archer, the presenter of a hard-hitting television show exposing criminals, and the one man likely to uncover the secrets of the Butterfly...
Ernest Dudley, the BBC "Armchair Detective" and creator of the famous "Doctor Morelle" series, is at the top of his form with this exciting novel of sensational murder and intrigue.
