Edgar Wallace

The Law of the Three Just Men

Description: 

"The jury cannot accept the unsupported suggestion--unsupported even by the prisoner's testimony since he has not gone into the box--that Mr. Noah Stedland is a blackmailer and that he obtained a large sum of money from the prisoner by this practice. That is a defence which is rather suggested by the cross-examination than by the production of evidence.

The People of the River

Description: 

The People of the River is written by Edgar Wallace. The worshippers held a palaver, and decided that it would be a sin to rescue him since their lord, M'shimba-m'shamba, had so evidently decreed his death. More than this, they decided that it would be a very holy thing and intensely gratifying to their green devil, if they put fire to the hut--the fallen roof of wood and plaited grass heaved pathetically at the suggestion.

The Daffodil Mystery

Description: 

The Daffodil Mystery is written by Edgar Wallace. The man who turned to greet him may have been twenty-seven or thirty-seven. He was tall, but lithe rather than broad.

The Square Emerald

Description: 

The Square Emerald is written by Edgar Wallace. She looked blankly towards the desolation of the gardens, a place of bare-limbed trees and shivering shrubs--stared, as though she expected to see some fog wraith take a definite and menacing shape, and give tangible form to the shadows that menaced reason and life.

The Man Who Bought London

Description: 

The Man Who Bought London is written by Edgar Wallace. They stood for an extravagant aristocracy--you could see the shimmer and sheen of them as they bowled noiselessly along the Strand from theatre to supper table, in their brilliantly illuminated cars, all lacquer and silver work. They stood for all the dazzle of light, for all the joyous ripple of laughter, for the faint strains of music which came from the restaurants.

The Just Men of Cordova

Description: 

The Just Men of Cordova is written by Edgar Wallace. The man who sat at the marble-topped table of the Cafe of the Great Captain--if I translate the sign aright--was a man of leisure. A tall man, with a trim beard and grave grey eyes that searched the street absently as though not quite certain of his quest. He sipped a coffee con leche and drummed a little tune on the table with his slender white hands.

The Council of Justice

Description: 

The Council of Justice is written by Edgar Wallace. The wonderful congress was a fact. When it had been broached there were people who laughed at the idea; Niloff of Vitebsk was one because he did not think such openness possible. But little Peter (his preposterous name was Konoplanikova, and he was a reporter on the staff of the foolish Russkoye Znamza), this little Peter who had thought out the whole thing.

Bones

Description: 

Bones is written by Edgar Wallace. Occasionally an author will create a character of such vivid personality, such charmingly human attributes, that he ceases to be a "character" and becomes, to the reader, an individual — a friend.
