London’s vice trade was thriving in the late 1940s – and the kings of it were the Soho-based Messina brothers. They became so successful that they believed they were more powerful than the British government. But pride comes before a fall. And they hadn’t reckoned on the courage and influence of legendary investigative crime reporter Duncan Webb who would hasten their demise. This issue, in the first part of a new series, Murder Was My Business – “My War Against The Drug Barons,” we look at Webb’s role.
