The Casefiles of Mr J. G. Reeder by Edgar Wallace
'How on earth did you piece together all this?' he asked in wonder. Mr Reeder shook his head sadly. 'I have that perversion,' he said. 'It is a terrible misfortune. I see evil in everything. I have the mind of a criminal.' Let us introduce you to the enigmatic J. G. Reeder, a timid, gentle middle-aged man who carries a furled up umbrella and wears an old-fashioned flat-topped bowler hat. He is one of the great unsung sleuths of mystery fiction, created by the prolific Edgar Wallace, the 'King of Thrillers'. Despite his insignificant appearance, Reeder is a cold and ruthless detective who credits his success to his 'criminal mind' which allows him to solve a series of complex and audacious crimes and outwit the most cunning of villainous masterminds. This volume is a rich feast for crime fiction fans, containing the first three volumes in the Reeder canon: two novels, Room 13 and Terror Keep; and the classic collection of short stories, The Mind of J. G. Reeder.
