The Black- by Edgar Wallace

The Black

Edgar Wallace was great at writing thriller and crime novels and most of his works turned into movies, he was the creator of King Kong, he always stands beside the bad men or the criminals by making them protagonists.

Review by Ariadne Deborah Fassel

A thoroughly enjoyable adventure in the grand style. An impressionable young woman and her spendthrift father, an unscrupulous suitor, a mysterious neighbour who might be a forerunner of The Saint by Charteris, and an unconventional detective perform in a not-quite melodrama. If they didn't make a movie out of this, they should have.
