Book Description Peter Martin, Toronto, 1976. Hard Cover. Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good-. First Edition. 256 pp, 9 1/4" H. B&w photographs. "On Friday, September 9, 1949, Edwin Boyd (a little drunk at the time) withdrew $2,300 from a Toronto suburban branch of the Bank of Montreal - at the point of a gun. Bullets whistled past Boyd's head as he left the bank. The manager emptied his revolver at the fleeing bandit, but missed every time. Perhaps if Boyd had been shot or captured in the keystone cops chase that followed, his career would have ended the day it began. But he wasn't and it didn't. Two years later, Boyd was the nation's most notorious bandit and the leader of a phenomenon known as 'The Boyd Gang'. The Canadian public was terrorized and screaming for blood - and still more titillating newspaper stories. When Toronto's Sgt. of Detectives Edmund 'The Chinaman' Tong (a Welshman) was gunned down by gang members, the public waited for the final act in the saga: retribution. But the real story - the intrigues, motives, love affairs, betrayals, and the modus operandi of both criminals and police - was more fascinating than the most lurid fabrications dreamed up by the press. This story is told here for the first time." Light wrinkling at bottom of spine, very light browning to edges of text block. Dust jacket has very light edge wear, minor wrinkling at bottom of spine, scattered very small scuff/rubbing marks - mainly on rear panel. Seller Inventory # 28260

Book Description Peter Martin Associates Ltd, 1978. Hardcover / Hardback. Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Good. Hardback. Featuring the Boyd Gang : Leonard Jackson, Steve Suchan, Willie "The Clown" Jackson and Edwin Alonzo Boyd. On Friday, September 9, 1949, Edwin Boyd, (a little drunk at the time) withdrew $2,300 from a Toronto suburban branch of the Bank of Montreal - at the point of a gun. Bullets whistled past Boyd's head as he left the bank. The manager emptied his revolver at the fleeing bandit, but missed every time. Perhaps if Boyd had been shot or captured in the keystone cops chase that followed, his new career would have ended the day it began. But he wasn't, and it didn't. Two years later, Boyd was the nation's most notorious bandit and the leader of a phenomenon known as "The Boyd Gang". The gang's exploits made such good copy that news writers were encouraged to embroider and extend the known facts with their own inventions. The story had everything - flamboyant bank robberies, impossible jail breaks, beautiful "kept" women, exciting gun fights, massive manhunts and daring captures. For 3yrs, police, prison authorities and bank officials were frustrated in their attempts to bring the unruly mobsters under control. The Canadian public was terrorised and screaming for blood - and still more titilating newspaper stories were printed. When Toronto's Sgt. of Detectives Edmund "The Chinaman" Tong (a Welshman) was gunned down by gang members, the public waited for the final act in the saga: retribution. But the real story - the intrigues, motives, love affairs, betrayals, and the modus operandi of both criminals and police - was more fascinating than the most lurid fabrications dreamed up by the press. The story is told here for the first time, gleaned from police records and newspaper files, plus hundreds of hours of interviews with survivors - including Eddie Boyd himself. Illus. + Chronology. 256pp. 8vo. h/back. From the library of true crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. Browned pp. o/w Vg. in G++ pcdw. Seller Inventory # 14677
