Book Excerpt: 
p. 81: ". . . Reaching into my pocket, I extracted a small object closely resembling a cigarette lighter. Actually, it was a tiny camera, specially made for detective work. Entirely automatic, it could be concealed in the palm of the hand, and, simply by touching a small button with the thumb, scores of pictures could be taken on negatives no larger than a fingernail. . . .
