London-born Arthur La Bern worked as a journalist and war correspondent during WW2. He was interested in crime and wrote a number of non-fiction books of notorious British murderers.?Goodbye Piccadilly…?tells the story of a London serial killer whose best friend is suspected by the police of being behind the murders. The title of the book is a line from the music hall hit?It’s a Long Way to Tipperary.?Hitchcock’s film?Frenzy,?adapted for the screen by Anthony Shaffer is based on?Goodbye Piccadilly…?but diverges from the story on a number of occasions. In fact La Bern was most dissatisfied with the result, especially the portrayal of the characters, and expressed his despleasure in a letter to?The Times?newspaper.?
