NOT AN EX.-LIBRARY OR REMAINDER BOOK Edgar Wallace established his reputation as a writer of detective thrillers, a genre in which he wrote more than 170 books, with the publication of The Four Just Men. "It was the jigsaw puzzle of Clench House, with death and threats of death for its ingredients, that puzzled Captain Timothy Jordan of the Rhodesian C. I. D." An early edition of this action thriller from the master of 'B-movie' suspense, Edgar Wallace - illegitimate son of an actress; adopted at nine days by a Billingsgate fish-porter; started work on Fleet Street aged eleven (selling newspapers); banned as a war correspondent by Lord Kitchener; writer of over 170 novels; made millions and lost them though gambling; died in , writing the screen-play for 'King Kong'. And the book is good, too! This prolific writer of thrillers is somewhat dismissed today, I think by those who've never bothered to read him. The truth is that he is a decent read, even by today's jaded standards. I think he suffers as a collectible author, because he did not have one series character. Try his stuff.

Over 160 films have been made of his novels.
