The Social Gangster

Publisher: Harper & Brothers
Number of pages: 216

Description:
Craig Kennedy, Jr. investigating a mysterious robbery, encounters a menacing condition peculiar to the social life of young people in our great cities, the gravity of which does not seem to be properly appreciated. In this case, the importance of a robbery dwindles before the far more appalling situation in the Brackett household, and, if not for Kennedy and his science, the distress of two devoted parents will be pitiful indeed.
