Caught today at Melbourne Central Little Library. Read a few pages on my way home on the bus and it looks very promising indeed.

Journal Entry 4 by wingmarmee463wing at Templestowe, Victoria Australia on Thursday, January 28, 2021
First published in 1956 this is the gripping true story of Ronald Chesney, international smuggler and murderer, whose sinister tentacles stretched from Britain right across Europe to Tangier, Algiers and the Middle East. Smuggling, blackmail and murder came easily to Chesney whose powerful personality, surface charm and daring exploits made him a legend in his lifetime. The author, Tom Tullett, was well qualified to write this biography having been a detective in the CID, during which period he was commended seven times for criminal investigation. Overall a compelling read.

The Life and Death of Ronald Chesney, killer & scoundrel.
THIS Is the story of Ronald Chesney, international smuggler and murderer, whose sinister tentacles stretched from Britain right across Europe to Tangier, Algiers and the Middle East. The author, was one of the first on the scene at Ealing when the Chesney murders were discovered and he followed the Chesney trail right through Europe to Tangier and Casablanca. He met Chesney's associates and his women friends. He talked to detectives who had tried for years to trap Chesney and obtained a mass of information hitherto unknown.
Smuggling, blackmail and murder came easily to Chesney whose powerful personality, surface charm and daring exploits made him a legend in his lifetime.
When the Scotland Yard Murder Squad began to close in, Chesney shot himself—but the story does not end there. His death left the underworld worried and fear touched many whose lives had crossed that of this larger-than-life adventurer. Fiction holds nothing stranger than this—the fantastic career of a modern buccaneer.
Sounds very interesting
