Born into poverty as an illegitimate London child, Wallace left school at 12. He joined the army at 21 and was a war correspondentduring the Second Boer War for Reuters and the Daily Mail. Struggling with debt, he left South Africa, returned to London and began writing thrillers to raise income, publishing books including The Four Just Men (1905).
Another excellent story based on British attempts to bring their administration to darkest Africa. Always with tongue in cheek, Edgar Wallace nevertheless provides insights into the period of history at the same time. Wonderful characters, enthralling stories, never a dull moment.
