The Council of Justice by Edgar Wallace by Edgar Wallace
This Halcyon Classics ebook contains the second of Edgar Wallace's 'Four Just Men' series, THE COUNCIL OF JUSTICE.
The novels of the Four Just Men series follow four men who take it upon themselves to kill for the greater cause of justice--in theory, those who are "beyond the law" like government figures, lawmakers, and other figures powerful enough to thwart justice. The just men consider themselves patriots and defenders of law and order who must act to protect society.
Richard Horatio Edgar Wallace (1875-1932) was an English crime writer, journalist, novelist, screenwriter, and playwright. Wallace is most famous today as the co-creator of KING KONG. He is also known for the J. G. Reeder detective stories, The Four Just Men, The Ringer, and for creating the Green Archer character.
