When James Beardmore receives a letter demanding £100,000 he refuses to pay - even though it is his last warning. It is his son Jack who finds him dead. Can the amazing powers of Derrick Yale, combined with the methodical patience of Inspector Parr, discover the secret of the Crimson Circle? Who is its all-powerful head and who is the stranger who lies in wait? Twice in a lifetime a ruthless criminal faces the executioner.

Another classic from Edgar Wallace, published in 1925.

to fixing Chapter XXXIX? (Chapter XXXIX has the word "chapter" before the Roman numerals; the other chapters do not.) If you're moving on - with other projects - then this one is a nice addition to my Wallace library.

I want you to know I appreciate Wallace's work, and what you've done.


P.S.: And please, if you - or anyone else - find a number of mistakes in mine, let me know!

That was deliberate. For some reason, chapter XXIX doesn't have a title (I suspect it got missed off the scan), and I thought that "Chapter XXIX" looked better than just "XXIX" on its own!
