FROM the brightly lighted windows of Zeiner's Club eminated the noise of music and merriment. Inside the nightClub the band played, whilst the violinist scraped a haunting melody. And in the next room there was a body of a man dead ! All through the night those lights shone over the darkened street, but the gaiety had long since ceased, the band departed. In place of the Commissionaire in his resplendent blue uniform, stood an grim police constable in the staid blue of the London Police. Scotland Yard was in possession.
That was the evening of Monday, October 4th —a night which many people were never to forget. Albert Tuke, the heavy drinking saxophonist, Renee, the dance-hostess who was in love, Fellberg, the hospitable Jew who was unafraid. . . .
