Crime Circles Manhattan – 1980
The cover of the 1980 book "Crime Circles Manhattan" by Jeremiah Timothy Driscoll (1909-1994). The "CIRCLE LINE V" is silhouetted on the cover of Captain Driscoll's book about New York City's Circle Line. While long on accusations of wrongdoings, but short on details, the book depicts the early years of the Circle Line, "America's Favorite Boat Ride". Driscoll alleges that the company misled Captain Jacob 'Jake' Martin into a deal where the "SACHEM" was purchased by the Circle Line for a fraction of her true value and where Captain Martin lost a boat he loved.
