The Clue of the Silver Key
by Edgar Wallace

(Hodder, 1961)

(Originally published 1930 / cover uncredited.)

So, I know he supposedly inspired all those zany German movies full of villains running around in frog-masks and old castles full of neurotics being murdered with spiked gloves and so on, but from the little Edgar Wallace I’ve tried to read over the years, I fear I may have achieved the impossible.

Great cover illustration though.
