Novelist, playwright and journalist, Edgar Wallace, is best known for his popular detective and suspense stories which, in his lifetime, earned him the title, „King of the Modern Thriller. This early work by Edgar Wallace was originally published in 1934. „The Woman From the East and Other Stories” is an enjoyable collection of short stories that include „The Chopham Affair”, „The Hopper”, „The Silver Charm”, and many more. As the stories are rather short and quite fast-paced with a lot of scenery-changes and adventures, this nice. It’s all great fun and Wallace keeps the action moving along swiftly, as he always did. If you haven’t discovered the joys of Wallace’s thrillers there is a good place to start. Highly recommended.
