5 May 2012 Tales of Mystery & the Supernatural

This Wordsworth Edition includes an exclusive Introduction by David Stuart Davies.

<center> ‘We shall have no other course to pursue but to fulfil our promise.
You will die at Eight in the Evening – The Four Just Men’
</center>

Criminals and malefactors beware! There is no escape from the sword of justice wielded by The Four Just Men. Here are the complete adventures of Edgar Wallace's daring and ingenious vigilantes. This fascinating bumper collection contains all six volumes of the Just Men saga: The Four Just Men, The Council of Justice, The Just Men of Cordova, The Law of The Four Just Men, The Three Just Men and Again the Three.

In these thrilling yarns of daring do, mystery and international intrigue, the Just Men tackle wrongdoers of all kinds from criminal masterminds and desperate anarchists to cunning murderers and obsessive madmen. Where Scotland Yard fails – they succeed. With a finely blended mixture of suspense, humour and action Edgar Wallace concocts a fantastic and unmissable series of page-turning adventures.

5.0 out of 5 stars Edgar Wallace's best. 5 Jun 2013
By minoru
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I've looked for this for ages and greedily read the lot on my various journeys around our railway system. I want to get all the other stories he wrote. I'm hoping Wordsworth Editions bring out some more of his stories. A darned Good Read!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good spectrum of stories about the 4 Just Men 29 Jun 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A good mixture of long stories and, in my opinion better still, short stories about the Just Men. The writing is a little mechanical at times, not surprising considering the prodigeous output of Edgar Wallace, but the stories are very ingenious

5.0 out of 5 stars Truly complete 6v. set 14 Oct 2012
By Librarian - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
REVISED 07-19-13: I had been hoping that this complete series would someday become available as an ebook in the Kindle store, and now it finally has, all 6 books (4 novels and 2 collections of short stories) bundled together in one collection. (I had read and enjoyed several of the titles that constitute this series a good many years ago, and I now look forward to finally reading the rest.)

Just to clear up two areas of possible confusion: FIRST, "The Four Just Men" is the title of ONE book that was later followed by FIVE others (for total of SIX), all of which became known collectively under that umbrella title. Technically, a complete "Four Just Men" could refer to the full, unabridged text of just that one, first book--but here it refers to a complete COLLECTION of ALL of them. SECOND, the publisher (Wordsworth) includes this title in its "Tales of Mystery and the Supernatural" SERIES, an umbrella term to include books that are mysteries OR supernatural (and occasionally both). This collection falls under the "mystery" category; it is NOT in any way supernatural.

When I purchased this Wordsworth edition (for $2.68, though the price has since risen), it was the only truly complete set available in the Kindle Store. There was briefly another set with all six books published by Pulptastic called "Complete Just Men Stories," but it has since been removed. Jame-Books offers an Edgar Wallace bundle of 25 books titled "The Four Just Men, and Other Stories;" while it includes these, the formatting (annoyingly large spaces between paragraphs in some books, but no paragraph distinction whatsoever in others) is not to my liking. It also has a TOC issue (as in the last two titles disappearing from it). I purchased the Jame-Books edition but, unhappy with its flaws, returned it for a refund.

Although this Wordsworth edition lacks a TOC, you can easily right/left click (on a Kindle Keyboard) to every one of the 6 titles (then bookmark each for future, direct acess); right/left clicking also leads to specific chapters within each book. (On the Kindle Paperwhite, tapping GO TO provides a list of titles; then, for a particular book, an additional tap lists chapters or stories within it.) This edition also has an informative introduction. At present this is the ONLY truly complete set specifically devoted to the Just Men series; be wary of numerous other so-called "complete" sets which do NOT contain ALL six books.

Trying to acquire all six of these books separately can be both challenging and confusing since U.S. titles frequently differ from the British. That's why a bundle for this series is particularly convenient; it's all done for you. I highly recommend this ebook edition to any discerning reader in search of some good, old-fashioned, British crime drama.

FYI: Edgar Wallace was a prolific author of "thrillers" and was VERY popular in the early decades of the 1900's. The first volume of this series was written in 1905; it was also the very first of some 170+ books he eventually wrote. Inasmuch as the last volume in this series was published (in Britain) in 1928, and he died in 1932, this particular series pretty much spans his entire writing career. Many of his other books are available in the Kindle Store (more than a few as public domain freebies), and the ones I have read thus far were quite good.
