    Ah, this was such a nice surprisethere are two stories in this book The Terror and White Face I seriously should maybe think about reading book descriptions rather than just be seduced by the pretty covers of books.Anyway, The Terror was your typical Edgar Wallace thriller focused on madness, crime, and darkest London To me Wallace didn t write noir as much as a special kind of Gothic crime, including damsels in distress, castles, secret passages, oh, and a mad monk.Yes, the plot is sil Ah, this was such a nice surprisethere are two stories in this book The Terror and White Face I seriously should maybe think about reading book descriptions rather than just be seduced by the pretty covers of books.Anyway, The Terror was your typical Edgar Wallace thriller focused on madness, crime, and darkest London To me Wallace didn t write noir as much as a special kind of Gothic crime, including damsels in distress, castles, secret passages, oh, and a mad monk.Yes, the plot is silly, the characters are two dimensional, and many of the other aspect are utterly ridiculous, but this is just the sort of crime caper one sometimes needs So, what if it made me laugh out loud that one of the characters suffers from insanity for only exactly 2 hours every day Or was it 2 hours of sanity Does it matter I really liked this one It reminded me a lot of the German screen adaptations of Wallace s work they are hilariously, charmingly..dated but they are great guilty pleasures.White Face took a different approach to the typical Wallace story Yes, this story is also based on organised crime at it s heart, but this one here seemed to be a lot close some of the stories written by Arthur Conan Doyle There is a great twist, but there are also elements that seems to portray some of the crimes as the characters only choice, so almost ask for sympathy from the reader It was an interesting change from other works by Wallace that I am familiar with and I love that the story was included in this book edited by Martin Edwards but the story was also quite long and drawn out, which didn t work well for me

    The book contains 2 stories The Terror, and White Face.The Terror is about criminals trying to get revenge on the ringleader who double crossed them, running off with the loot from a robbery, while they serve 10 years in jail The story is centred around a creepy country house with a hooded figure prowler.White Face is about a white masked criminal who haunts London, while the police are trying to solve murder of Donald Bateman in Tidal Baisin.I enjoyed reading both stories as I am a big fan of The book contains 2 stories The Terror, and White Face.The Terror is about criminals trying to get revenge on the ringleader who double crossed them, running off with the loot from a robbery, while they serve 10 years in jail The story is centred around a creepy country house with a hooded figure prowler.White Face is about a white masked criminal who haunts London, while the police are trying to solve murder of Donald Bateman in Tidal Baisin.I enjoyed reading both stories as I am a big fan of classic crime novels I would definitely recommend them if you re a big fan too

    Extremely typical Edgar Wallace, which is a good thing in my view, but many might disagree.

  4. Mark Stratton says:

    Of the two, I enjoyed Whiteface much better Longer, better character development and such.

    I saw a television adaptation of The Terror about fifty five years ago and it created quite an impression on me I vividly remember the old sinister country house setting, the mysterious monk and the threatening moan of the organ in the bowels of the building I also recollect the surprise ending with a nice twist.The book is similar, quite short and has the feel of one of Wallace s many novels that he knocked out in a week The plot is less impressive than the atmosphere and I m still not sure I saw a television adaptation of The Terror about fifty five years ago and it created quite an impression on me I vividly remember the old sinister country house setting, the mysterious monk and the threatening moan of the organ in the bowels of the building I also recollect the surprise ending with a nice twist.The book is similar, quite short and has the feel of one of Wallace s many novels that he knocked out in a week The plot is less impressive than the atmosphere and I m still not sure how the robbery, at the heart of the plot, was carried out and I m a bit mystified how the police managed to sort it all out Still, in those days the twenties the police were infallible.Entertaining.David Lowther Author of The Blue Pencil, Liberating Belsen and Two Families at War, all published by Sacristy Press

    Ich denke, man sollte Wallace mal gelesen haben, gef llt mir gut, ist aber eher etwas f r zwischendurch mit gerade mal 105 Seiten und keinen berrraschenden Wendungen..vielleicht ist man verw hnt von den gewitzten Psychothrillern heutzutage..ein solider Krimi mit altem Charme Besonders die uralte Ausgabe die ich von meinem Opi gelesen habe, versetzt einen in eine andere Zeit

    Ich muss der vorangegangenen Bewertung zustimmen Edgar Wallace geh rt mit Sicherheit zu den Autoren, von denen man mal was gelesen haben sollte Ist ganz nette Unterhaltung f r Zwischendurch, rei t mich vor Spannung aber auch nicht vom Hocker.

    The version of this book contained The Terror and White Face both of which dealt with criminals double crossing each other.The two stories were reasonable but the writing descriptions all felt a bit dated.
