    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.

  2. Polly says:

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

  3. 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 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.

    My practice of buying a Detective Club Classic whenever I want a new mystery is proving a good one thus far When you buy The Terror you get a surprise it s two books in one, a fact not mentioned on the cover Turns out, when The Terror was originally published they had to bump up the font size to reach a respectable page number today it attains a mere 94 pages today, rather than resorting to this dirty trick, the publishers treat you to a bonus section novel, White FaceBoth were a speedy and enjoyable read, the first than the second Both are adapted plays, and in The Terror one there s a key moment that I can see how it would be terrifying on stage Wallace wouldn t exactly be a master wordsmith mixed metaphors abound, infer is used as as synonymous with imply , etc but I still enjoyed my purchase.

    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.

  8. Wilde Sky says:

    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.

  9. Kathy says:

    Two and a half stars Fairly predictable The revelation of who was the Terror fell somehow flat.

  10. Meylin Bayryamali says:

    Classical British crime story Not extremely suprised by the ending but its a good read for morning tube journeys to work.
