    The First Detective: The Life And Revolutionary Times Of Vidocq

    By: James Morton

    Date Released

    Out of Print

    Eugene Vidocq was the Morse, the Guv'nor, the James Bond of his day. A notorious criminal and prison escaper, he turned police officer and employed a gang of ex-convicts as his detectives. Now, James Morion takes us on a historical romp through the eighteenth century in this well received historical biography.

    Today Vidocq's influence can still be seen as members of The Vidocq Society, an unusual, exclusive crime-solving organization honor him by applying their collective forensic skills and experience to "cold case" homicides and unsolved deaths.
