de Brune, Aiden: The Shadow Crook (1928); v1; 11 Oct 2019

It's Sydney in the late 1920s, and a mysterious figure haunts the mean streets of slums like Darlinghurst and Surry Hills. The "shadow crook", as the figure is known, is searching through the city's underworld for something or someone, and is ruthless in his methods.

Inspector Mason of the Sydney C.I.B. finds traces of his passage in several cases, and gradually closes in.

Taken from the serial in the Queensland Times in 1928-9, and other newspapers of the period. Published as a book by Angus and Roberton, 1930, the only de Brune serial later published as a book in period.

In preparing the de Brune serials as digital books for Roy Glashan's Library in 2017 I created a consistent style of covers for them all, using old ad illustrations, free stock images and the like.

Incidentally, there were in the original sources variations in the author's name: Aidan and Aiden. For consistency here, I will use "Aiden", even if the particular book itself used Aidan.
