Crime & Mystery

Kara hates candles. He also believes that there is a great criminal lost in Johan Lexman, the detective story writer involved in a plot more fantastic than any of his own ingenious mysteries. It is no secret that Kara had hoped to marry the beautiful Grace, but she is now Lexman?s wife. But Lexman owes Vassalaro, the Greek moneylender, and Vassalaro has threatened to kill him. A tense and powerful tale that moves dramatically between London and the Balkans. Edgar Wallace was a soldier, poet, correspondent, reporter, author and playwright. He wrote more than 170 books, which have been translated in to 28 languages and sales of which have exceeded 50 million copies. Over 160 films have been made from his books- more than any other author. He was working on the original screenplay for King Kong when he died. In the 1920's, one of Wallace's many publishers claimed that a quarter of all books read in England were written by him.
