You. will not have to search between
the lines "for the kernel of the story in
"Crooks and Their Ways," the first install?
ment of which will be printed in the Sun?
day issue of The Times- Dispatch for July
7. It is all shown as plainly as if uncovered
by the rays of a dark lantern. Edward Dun
lap, the old theif who wrote these wonder?
ful memoirs of an eventful life of crime,
withheld nothing when he went to
tell his story. Being a man of frankness,
he told it in plain language. Being a
man of intellect and education, he has 1
clothed the story with a literary charm
that makes it unusual in the line of
Those who enjoyed "Raffles"
and the others of his kind will find
something even more enjoyable about
"Spht-the-Wind," as Dunlap was
known in police and criminal history.
The writer of this plain story of crime
loses nothing when compared with any story
tellers of the day.
The accuracy of his first-hand statements can?
not be confused with the imaginary happen?
ings invented by the story teller.
Every line and chapter of "Crooks and Their
Ways" is worth reading. The'first installment is quite
as readable as any that will follow. It will give a key
to the remainder of the record. Every reader should
begin with the first installment, if possible.
