TITLE PAGE: "WHEN SUPERINTENDENT MASON UNTANGLED THE THREADS OF LONDON CRIME, AUSTRALIAN BANK ROBBERY, SOUTH AFRICAN SWINDLING, THAT ENMESHED WHITE FACE, THE SOLITARY BANDIT WHO TERRORIZED LONDON, HE FOUND..." "It was a short, stout knife, the blade stained and smeared red. Carefully he picked it out and as carefully laid it on the bare table. 'Here is the knife that killed Donald Bateman,' he said. 'There he is! There he is!' she shrieked, pointing at him. 'The murderer! You killed him! You said you would if you ever met him, and you did it!" Mason watched the prisoner curiously, but he made no response." A crime club detective story featuring the exploits of Tidal Basin. "Michael's wet hand went through the water, but he could find nothing. And then he saw what hundreds of pairs of eyes, focused on that strip of pavement had not seen. It lay poised upon the sharp edge of the curb, as if it had been carefully placed there, though it must have rolled and fallen into its position through no other agent other than the force of gravity."

BEST OF RECENT FICTION SECTION IN BACK OF BOOK 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. 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.
