Mister Big by Gerald Verner
Behind all the large-scale crimes of recent years, the police believe there is an organising genius…
The name by which this mysterious personality has become familiar to the press, the police and the underworld is Mister Big.
When murder and kidnapping are added to his crimes, Superintendent Budd of Scotland Yard becomes actively involved. Eventually the master detective uncovers a witness who has actually observed and recognised Mister Big leaving the scene of a murder – but before he can tell Budd whom he has seen, he is himself murdered!
Can Budd catch this mysterious killer, before it’s too late?
