Post Wallace, Edgar: When the Gangs Came to London. v1, 20 Aug 2008

1932 crime thriller by Edgar Wallace.

Set in the late 1920s-early 1930s, this is a kind of "crossover mob story", tracing the exploits (and eventual downfall) of two gangs from Chicago, operating in London.

The book has all the elements you would expect from Edgar Wallace – an all-knowing villain (or set of villains), a hard-working intelligent set of policemen from Scotland Yard fettered by a very British set of laws, quick murders of the rich and the poor, an exceedingly pretty woman, a hint of a love interest (so wonderfully portrayed by Wallace in so many of his works), a company that acts as a cover for the mob (another Wallace staple)… Not to mention, Wallace’s sparkling oh-so-brilliant language and outstandingly dry wit – a wit that pervades through the narratives and the dialogues.

Enjoy!
