    4 stars because I didnt have that WOW in the end I mean I kinda got it myself, who the bad man was, two or three chapters before it was revealed Still, a solid british style mystery thriller Wallace pace is rapid, you get quite involved in the story I have to say, i expected of a murder mystery, i was reading thinking how is going to be murdered, then i got a bit frustrated, because nobody got murdered Was of a thriller thing Still great and recomforting reading Cant wait to my next Wallace ei [...]

    Dressing to KillIf you want to read a locked room murder mystery where an annoyingly self centred detective, preferably one with a Belgian accent, eventually has all the suspects assemble, after talking to them individually and eavesdropping on their conversations with each other, and then reveals that the victim was the long lost brother of the gardener s second wife, who herself helped her husband achieve the rather enviable state of widowerhood in order to be able to marry her, and that the o [...]

    According to the records of the Chelford family, the owners of the Fossaway Manor, an enormous treasure in gold lingots had been buried somewhere in the grounds during Queen s Elizabeth time The lord of the manor is a mono maniac his attorney a passionate gambler who has lost his sister s fortune as well as his own Into the maze of cross purposes and desperateness at the Manor, in these modern days of electric light and motor cars, enters the Black Abbott again, terrifying the people of the esta [...]

    Anche per questo giallo ho riscontrato il difetto del troppo , sebbene giustificato dall atmosfera gotica Troppe botole, troppe inferriate, troppi marchingegni, troppi fantasmi Avrebbe potuto cavarsela con qualche decina di pagine in meno e l intreccio non ne avrebbe risentito Vabbe , ho imparato abbastanza di Wallace e ritorno a Simenon

    The book is an interesting mystery with some romantic elements though no character is especially likeable It was interesting to see how the gold bug infected all the characters and then to watch them work at cross purposes.

    Edgar Wallace certainly has a fine mind for thinking up skulduggery and clever ways for people to defraud each other Throw in some legends involving ghosts and lost gold, and you ve got quite a story So, we have Harry Alford, Earl of Chelford who lives in Fossaway Manor, where his family has lived for centuries There used to be an Abbey on the grounds as well, and there s a legend that a black abbot haunts the place People within the manor, i.e servants, and the rubes in the environs begin to te [...]

    I hadn t heard of it before picking up an old edition of it at a thrift store, but I started reading it and ended up finishing it in less than a week which is saying a lot for me, because it s rare I actually have time to read The writing style was engaging, the content was pretty sound although I guessed who the antagonist was pretty quick , the characters were well developed, and even with some of it s incredibly predictable moments and situations, I was still surprised by the ending I d recom [...]

    Excellent Edgar Wallace mystery Hidden treasure with admittedly a blatantly obvious clue , a mysterious ghostly monk and lots of intrigue Not really a crime novel although there is a murder, this is a rip roaring old fashioned thriller Wallace at his best.

    Pi che un giallo una storia avventurosa tra a, intrighi, sotterfugi e misteri Su tutto aleggia la figura di un oscuro abate e la leggenda di un favoloso tesoro I personaggi sono interessanti e ben delineati e la storia coinvolgente.

    Un bel giallo, non il classico giallo con assassino e indagini per scoprirlo, ma un giallo con molti colpi di scena riguardo un famoso tesoro medioevale

    A hist ria est constru da de forma a que o leitor esteja permanentemente interessado na sua evolu o, uma vez que ele pr prio vai construindo hip teses, com as pistas que o autor vai deixando cair nas p ginas do livro Para obter este efeito o autor deixa por vezes de lado a plausibilidade do que conta, mas esta, em rigor, tamb m n o faz falta E o interesse vai crescendo O problema que o fim n o um cl max, mas um anti cl max A hist ria acaba bem de mais e sem qualquer nota de fantasia, mas antes c [...]

    Este livro surpreendeu pela positiva, nunca tinha lido nada do Edgar Wallace e tenho que dizer que gostei bastante de ler esta livro.Um livro rico em suspense at o fim e sua historia est muito bem constru da e cheia de suspense como j referi.
