No date (1933). A title from the publisher's Pioneer Series. From the rear flap: "Secret Service is pretty certain to be a difficult and dangerous job, with plenty of scope for a cool head and a stout heart." And so it is, with our heroes "combating a desperate, well-organised gang" smuggling cocaine, heroin and opium. A scarce title, especially in a dust jacket. Red cloth w/small black illustration to bottom right corner of front cover, black spine lettering, 192 pages, frontispiece and dust jacket illustration by C. (Christopher) Cavania Sanders. Gently bumped spine ends, foxing to to all edges, mild offsetting to front end paper, in moderately edgeworn dust jacket w/short edge tears, a bit of chipping to corners/spine ends, some smudging, previous owner's tape repairs to reverse. Scarce.
