Detective story, a play in three acts by Sidney Kingsley( Book )

30 editions published between 1945 and 2005 in 6 languages and held by 706 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The scene is the squad room and office in a New York police station. The playwright presents a fascinatingly realistic picture of routine cases brought into a metropolitan police station in the course of a day. Out of the welter of human misery, vice and stupidity there emerges the tragic and moving case of a decent young fellow who has stolen money from his employer. Though a woman who is in love with him comes to his help and the employer is offered everything that has been taken from him, the case has fallen into the hands of McLeod, a hardworking detective whose experience in police work has developed in him a mania for punishing all law breakers, whom he regards as incorrigibles. Nothing will satisfy him but brutal punishment. He is at work at the same time on a case involving an abortionist whose attorney, failing to move him by other means, forces McLeod's wife to confess to her husband that she had herself some years before made use of the services of the abortionist in question. Since McLeod worships his wife and finds in her the only happiness of his existence, his world collapses about him. The climax comes when McLeod gets involved with another prisoner who attempts to escape from the squad room with the aid of a revolver taken from one of the detectives. McLeod is shot and killed. This climax is a fitting end to McLeod's career. To the last, he had been bent upon doing what he considered his duty--in seeing that criminals obeyed the letter of the law at no matter what cost." -- Publisher's description

Sidney Kingsley : five prizewinning plays by Sidney Kingsley( Book )

7 editions published between 1995 and 1997 in English and held by 337 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sidney Kingsley is a playwright, but through his writing he has played many other parts as well - a social and political activist, a health care reformer, an advocate for children, a patriot, a visionary. Of his nine professionally produced plays, five garnered major awards. This collection of Kingsley's award-winning plays fills a void in American dramatic publishing and provides the definitive edition of the plays, each with an introduction by the playwright. Although critical statements on Kingsley's work do appear in significant studies of American theatre, and though his plays continue to be produced, there has never been a standard edition of his major works
