Whiz mob: a correlation of the technical argot of pickpockets with their behavior pattern /by David W. Maurer.
David W. Maurer's classic study of the world of pickpockets. Maurer explains the colorful expressions and vivid words used by pickpockets and uses them to provide a window into the life and experiences of the professional criminal. Although he is quick to point out that he never had any actual experience on the racket, Maurer spent many years interviewing pickpockets and learning about their way of life. The result is a fascinating look at the work, lives, morals, and dangers of this element of the criminal subculture.
