Publishers Description: Account of the professional life of a successful and unorthodox late-19-century detective in the Victorian Police Force. His disguises, narrow escapes and extraordinary ruses are among the many characteristics which invite comparison with Sherlock Holmes. Includes notes, a bibliography and an index. The author, a well-known columnist for the Melbourne TAge', has also written TGreat Australian Folk Songs' (1964) and TCelebration' (1977).
