    Another book I bought for its reference value in the world of role-playing games (yeah, I'm a geek) and/or writing of short stories.It's basically a dictionary of the various terms used by the underworld figures of thieves, pickpockets, thugs, tramps, beggars and other criminals, etc. It's quite a treat.

    Great book for digging into the languages of crooks, tramps and other natives of the underworld.
