SynopsisEdit

Biggles is asked to track down a particularly nasty criminal and prison escapee named "Nick the Shiekh" or "Lazor the Razor" because his trademark is attacking people with a razor.

  • The title is somewhat of a misnomer because Biggles doesn't really go into the underworld, undercover or otherwise, unlike in Biggles on the Home Front.
