The Crimson Circle is a secret criminal society run along the lines of the Black Hand and other such organizations. Its leader demands that prominent business men and wealthy aristocrats pay up or be killed. The vast organization includes ruined men of business and petty thieves--none of them kno...more

Really this book deserves 2 1/2 stars... It was a servicable mystery but I figured out who The Crimson Circle was about 2/3 in & also deduced most of the other twist as well. Generally I am not good at solving mysteries before the detective, so I view my ability to solve this one as a sign th...more

A very nicely plotted and well-written book of its type - it's not literature, and doesn't pretend to be. I am reading books of this kind as research, to discover little social details (though this is set post-WW1, there are many points in common with Holmes' world), and to get a feel for the cha...more

Me gusta el estilo de Edgar Wallace. Dinámico y sin florituras, el autor nos introduce en un mundo donde una organización secreta (me encantan las organizaciones secretas) causa el terror entre los ricos de la Inglaterra de principios de siglo. Su marca es un círculo carmesí que está en el boca a...more

Ai että! Kyllä oli hyvä jännäri. Paljon huikeita käänteitä juonessa, mutta silti yhtä linjaa pitkin kuljettiin kohti loppuratkaisua. Wallace antaa lukijalle muutaman niin selkeän vaihtoehdon, että oikean syyllisen tietäminen vaatii kyllä arvailuja ennen kuin homma on paketissa.

One should never wait for more than a few hours before writing up a review/synopsis of an Edgar Wallace tale. They're so convoluted one can hardly remember what happened just a few days later on. At least that's the case for those us with "mature" minds. Whatever, Wallace is always supremely ente...more

Quite typical of Edgar Wallace but definitely one his better works. I used to read a lot of him when I was a teenager and this bought back quite a few memories. More thriller than detective story but none the worse for that. It wasn't difficult to spot who was the villain but there was an interes...more

A rather exciting classic murder mystery, I'll recommend it to any reader inclined to such...more

Giallo molto intrigante. Situazioni apparentemente inspiegabili e 'inutili' alla fine si rivelano indizi decisivi. Sarebbe bastato che stessi più attenta a "quella certa incongruenza" che avevo individuato e mi suonava strana, ma che poi ho trascurato, e avrei indovinato il colpevole!

A Classic British Crime Novel

Edgar Wallace was England's famous King of the Thrillers, churning out almost 200 novels in his career. They say in the 20's and 30's, one in every four books read in England was a Wallace novel. Written in 1922, The Crimson Circle was one of his more famous works whi...more
