Shanghai in the 1930s was one of the world's most dangerous cities, with kidnappings and murders daily occurrences. British police officer E.W. Peters of the Shanghai Municipal Police takes us down the city's dark lanes and alleys, through a crime-ridden underworld of brothels, opium dens and gambling parlors. This often riotous, true-crime chronicle is filled with colorful criminals, fumbled police raids and gross misunderstandings, one of which lands the author on trial for murder. A must-read for those interested in old Shanghai at its most exciting, with a new foreword by China historian Robert Bickers (The Scramble for China and Empire Made Me).
