The Murder Book of J. G. Reeder
The Murder Book of J. G. Reeder
by Edgar Wallace
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £26.83

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable reading, 22 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've always thought that Wallace had three levels of books. The really good ones such as the J G Reeder series plus the Sanders books are in the top flight. Then there is a large body of good books and, at the bottom a small load of rubbish which I suspect somebody else wrote.

The Surprising Exp Of Mr Shuttlebury Cobb
The Surprising Exp Of Mr Shuttlebury Cobb
by Richard Austin Freeman
Edition: Paperback
Price: £6.99

3.0 out of 5 stars Light., 13 Jan. 2012
This is NOT a typical Austin Freeman book. It can best be described as light and fluffy but quite entertaining nonetheless.


Mr Polton Explains (Dr. Thorndyke)
Mr Polton Explains (Dr. Thorndyke)
by Richard Austin Freeman
Edition: Paperback
Price: £6.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Delightful., 13 Jan. 2012
A delightful and heart warming tale of a talented and devoted little chap who features in so many (probably all) of the Thorndyke stories. Essential reading for all Freeman addicts.


The Man Who Bought London
The Man Who Bought London
by Edgar Wallace
Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.99

2.0 out of 5 stars Three different styles., 4 Nov. 2011
Edgar Wallace wrote in three different styles. There are the totally brilliant books such as the "Sanders of the River" series,those about J.G.Reeder and those about the Four Just Men. Then there is a second ranking but still very good lot which are the bulk of his work. Finally, there are the somewhat amateurish and not very good ones which include "The Man Who Bought London" and many others. Considering that Edgar Wallace wrote around 120 books he really didn't do too badly!

4.0 out of 5 stars old fashioned, 18 Sept. 2011
This one of the author's more erudite books. Not light reading, but to old fellas like me, most enjoyable and full of memories of politeness and how decent people behaved.

1.0 out of 5 stars One of several, 24 Jun. 2011
This review is from: The Lone House Mystery (Paperback)
My father once told me that Edgar Wallace sometimes used ghost writers. This must be one of them, and a beginner too!
