Edgar Wallace is probably best known today for writing the screenplay for the original King Kong just before he died. Apparently, he was a prolific author. On the back cover of my Dover edition was written "[d]uring his two-decade period of popularity, in the 1920s and 1930s, it was estimated that one out of every four books read in England, excepting only Bibles and textbooks, was authored by Wallace."

I'm afraid the J.G. Reeder stories suffer from comparison to Sherlock Holmes. Reeder resembles Holmes in a few respects; quirky, with a fantastic memory and a talent for putting together clues.

I first discovered these stories when I heard two of the stories in a collection of old mystery pieces on audio book. The collection is good. The character is impossible and fun to read about.

I do enjoy Mr. Reeder. He's such an unlikely hero.
A series of enthralling mysteries by written by Edgar Wallace.
They feature the enigmatic figure of Mr JG Reeder who works for the Public Prosecutor's office and has the mind of a criminal.

His novel methods bring the criminals of 1920s London to justice.
