The Forger (E2)
von Edgar Wallace
Forged notes have started to appear everywhere. Mr Cheyne Wells of Harley Street has been given one. So has Porter. Peter Clifton is rich, but no one is quite certain how he acquired his money - not even his new wife, the beautiful Jane Leith. One night someone puts a ladder to Jane's window and enters her room. It is not her jewels they are after. Inspector Rouper and Superintendent Bourke are both involved in trying to solve this thrilling mystery. AUTHBIO: Edgar Wallace was a soldier, poet, war correspondent, reporter, author and playwright. He wrote more than 170 books, which have been translated into 28 languages and sales of which have exceeded 50 million copies. Over 160 films have been made from his books - more than any other author. He was working on the original screenplay for King Kong when he died. In the 1920s one of Wallace's many publishers claimed that a quarter of all books read in England were written by him.
