After working with MI5 on aircraft sabotage during WWII, the author predicted the new pattern of crime in airline smuggling with the onset of high speed commercial flights. Fish details the beginnings of the new crime patterns and how he went about fighting it. Ian Fleming, creator of the James Bond series, describes in his introduction that this book is "some of the best I have ever read in any language on police work".
