  • A well-organized, unscrupulous gang of robbers is terrorizing London. They make their hit almost undetected, and before the police can scramble, they disappear into the night. Sometimes, their exploits coincide with the sightings of a mysterious and fast motor boat passing on the Thames, but no one but the Thames Police Inspector John Wade believes the two are connectedYet his gut and his heart keep bringing him onto the doorstep of the "Mecca" club on one of the Thames's wharves. How is the clu [...]


  • I do find the normal racism of the 1920s Brit hard to deal with, but I'm enough of a historian to prefer books remain that way as a reminder of how things have changed for the better than have them revised. We have enough people, and I'm one of them myself occasionally, who are voluble about how much better was the past than is the present (I'm not denying that it probably was in some ways, but by no means all). Still, it puts a damper on my normal enjoyment of Edgar Wallace when you can't read [...]


  • His books are terrible! - but I have some strange affection for them. It's something to do with period pieces, it's something to do with the comedy value, it's something to do with their own little myth of a London that he produces that occasionally sends me back for a read of 2 or 3 in a quick flush of enthusiasm. having said that I've read this one 6 times - WHY?, and the Door with Seven Locks 3 times. Strange, but true - and fun.


  • Es un libro sobre una banda de ladrones y el policía que los investiga la hace medio de Sherlock Holmes, tiene suspenso y poco a poco vas intuyendo el desenlace con las pistas, lo único que no me gustó fue que al finalizar y descubrir todos los misterios como que los cuenta muy rapido, sentí como si se le terminaba el número de páginas al escritor y dijo ay pues ahorita resuelvo todo en un capítulo jajajjaja. Es un libro entretenido.


  • A simply marvellous read!! Jam packed with witty dialogue , action, intrigue, great characters and complete suspense. Loved the setting, tone and feel. Would read it again any-day! So very glad its on my shelf.
