Hell is a City, Paperback / softback Book

Hell is a City Paperback / softback

Part of the Chief Inspector Martineau Investigates series

Paperback / softback

Description

Hell is a City is the first of Maurice Procter's Inspector Martineau series and was made into taut, fast-paced film in 1959 by Hammer Studios, set against the grimy back streets and rain-streaked bright lights of Manchester. When hardened criminal Don Starling escapes from jail, killing a prison guard in the process, Inspector Philip Martineau knows he will stop at nothing to make good his escape.

The two men have known each other since childhood, and Starling blames Martineau for his incarceration a decade earlier.

As the story hurtles to its conclusion, the two men meet in a final, violent confrontation.
