Richard Horatio Edgar Wallace was born on the 1st April 1875 in Greenwich, London. Leaving school at 12 because of truancy, by the age of fifteen he had experience; selling newspapers, as a worker in a rubber factory, as a shoe shop assistant, as a milk delivery boy and as a ship’s cook. By 1894 he was engaged but broke it off to join the Infantry being posted to South Africa. He also changed his name to Edgar Wallace which he took from Lew Wallace, the author of Ben-­Hur. In Cape Town in 1898 he met Rudyard Kipling and was inspired to begin writing.

• Two of British author Edgar Wallace's best-­selling mystery books from the early 1900s are bound together in this Kindle edition: The Green Rust & The Man Who Bought London

The Green Rust
A science fiction thriller in which bio-­terrorists threaten to release an agent that will destroy the world's corn crops,

The Man Who Bought London (1915)
A crime novel from the master of murder and suspense.
As the novel begins:
"Night had come to the West End, but though the hour was late, though all Suburbia might at this moment be wrapped in gloom--­a veritable desert of deadness relieved only by the brightness and animation of the busy public-­houses--­the Strand was thronged with a languid crowd all agape for the shady mysteries of the night world, which writers describe so convincingly, but the evidence of which is so often disappointing.­"
The Man Who Bought London was made into a film by the same name, a 1916 silent crime movie directed by Floyd Martin Thornton.
