Within the pages of this haunting and revealing account of his life, she re-creates in vivid detail and with remarkable detachment, the world of criminals and corrupt policemen that he dominated until his death in 1978.Spanning a time of enormous social and political change, Charles Taylor's story is an extraordinary one, full of cunning and intrigue, corruption, hardship and secrecy.
