‘Double Dan’ is a globe-trotting detective caper which takes us from the streets of London to the sprawling heat of Australia. Someone has been masquerading as our protagonist to abscond with huge sums of money, but who? In a tale with a brilliantly compelling cast of characters, secret passage ways, plot twists and even a little bit of the supernatural, comes another brilliant detective novel from acclaimed author, Edgar Wallace. It is a novel perfect for anyone that loves a bit of ‘Sherlock’ in their lives.
Edgar Wallace (1875-1932) was an English writer, poet and journalist. He was such a prolific writer that his publisher claimed his work could account for a quarter of all books sold in England. He wrote countless books, screenplays, poems and historical non-fiction, spawning over one hundred and sixty films based on his work. He unfortunately passed away suddenly before he could see his most famous creation ‘King Kong’ come to life. It has been adapted several times over the years, notably by Peter Jackson of Lord of the Rings fame, and more recently in ‘Godzilla vs Kong’ starring Millie Bobby Brown.
