1911, East London. The police collaborate with racketeers to keep an uneasy peace, periodically broken by violent gang wars. Dido Peach comes to prominence by breaking the unwritten rules of the street. For a brief time he rules the underworld.


His fall is sudden and spectacular, shaking even the callous and vicious neighbourhood in which he is trapped. This new edition is introduced by Ken Worpole, author of Dockers and Detectives (Five Leaves), which rekindled interest in Baron and many other important yet overlooked British writers of the 20th century.
