It is impossible not to be thrilled by Edgar Wallace! Vintage crime in vintage packaging
Miss Ella Creed had been knocked out by thieves outside her home and her jewels were taken. She seemed to care little about them - they were just a very clever imitation after all - but when she discovered a card tied round her neck she was terrified. On it was a crude drawing of a feathered serpent. Reporter Peter Dewin soon discovers that a wealthy artist, a boxing promoter and a nouveau riche stockbroker share her fear. But why? And who is behind the crimes of 'The Feathered Serpent'?
