I thoroughly enjoyed this book even though I had solved the mystery 2/3 of the way through the story. The book reads like a Saturday matinee serial with quick chapters, lots of action and cliff hangers. The romance at the end feels tacked on. There is no reason for the detective and the librarian to fall for each other!
A bit more Gothic than the other Wallace books I've read. Perky but swooning heroine. Reserved but smitten hero. Pathetic monsters in the dark. Creepy tomb. Creepy house. Still, a fun read.
Combines a mystery thriller plot with considerable dashes of gothic horror, and just the faintest hint of science fiction. It’s a bizarre mix, but through sheer bravado Wallace somehow makes it work.
The first Edgar Wallace I've read; it was quite decent.
Could not put it down!

Τα μυθιστορήματα του Ουάλλας είναι γεμάτα από ολοζώντανο ρεαλισμό και ανατομικές γνώσεις της ψυχολογίας των εγκληματιών. Στην εποχή του θεωρήθηκε ο πιο δημοφιλής μυθιστοριογράφος και δραματικός συγγραφέας. Αναμενόμενο αλλά συναρπαστικό βιβλίο.
Good times but weak compared to some of the others in this series. Still, a page turner, however with a rather lack-lustre ending.
An enjoyable enough read but not one of the best books by Wallace. I just found out that a film adaptation was made in 1940, I will definitely try to see it if I get a chance.

8/10. Ar visai šokējošiem secinājumiem, it īpaši tādam gana mierīgam autoram. Interesanta stāsta līnija un piesaistoši galvenie varoņi.
By no means my favourite Edgar Wallace, but it's not bad--full of all the usual suspense, melodrama and capital-R Romance!

Richard Horatio Edgar Wallace (April 1, 1875-February 10, 1932) was a prolific British crime writer, journalist and playwright, who wrote 175 novels, 24 plays, and countless articles in newspapers and journals.

Over 160 films have been made of his novels, more than any other author.
