The room was a small one, and had been chosen for its remoteness fromthe dwelling rooms. It had formed the billiard room, which the formerowner of Weald Lodge had added to his premises, and John Minute, who hadneither the time nor the patience for billiards, had readily handed overthis damp annex to his scientific secretary. Along one side ran a plain deal bench which was crowded with glassstills and test tubes.

The problem of the straying chicken and the egg that is laid on alienproperty, the point of law involved in the question as to when a servantshould give notice and the date from which her notice should count-allthese matters came within Constable Wiseman's purview, and were solvedto the satisfaction of all who brought their little obscurities forsolution. It was a beaming young man that met the girl, but the smile left hisface when he saw how wan and haggard she was. "Take me somewhere," she said quickly. Are you ill?" he asked anxiously.

This is the first Edgar Wallace novel I've ever read, so I have no idea how representative it is of his work, but this is definitely a clever and well-executed whodunit/thriller.

The Man Who Knew's title character is an investigator looking into the murder of a South African diamond magnate who was murdered by one of three men, (1) his nephew, to whose guilt all the evidence points to, (2) his secretary, who stands to inherit the millionaire's fortune and has a secret life in a poverty-stricken part of London, and (3) an Afrikaaner blackmailer who shares a dark past with the magnate.

Wallace unfolds the mystery with skillful misdirection, building to an ending that, despite involving just a bunch of people in a room and no gunplay or chases, packs a punch.

Wallace is very much a hit-or-miss kind of writer. This is more miss than hit: a real slumgullion of a plot, it involves a greedy industrialist who's afraid of his life, a love triangle, a strange man who does weird experiments and seems to run around in the slums in disguise, old enemies resurfacing, a mysterious murder, and a man who's an early stab at an "information aggregator", of all people, in the Sherlock Holmes role. Nothing here really coalesces, this is not a very strongly plotted book for all of the things "that happen", as is often the case with Wallace's weaker efforts it feels like a drunken story that more peters out than finishes. Plaudits for the final reveal, though, which is genuinely surprising and which indicates how brilliant Wallace could really be at this sort of thing, when he was trying.

The Man who Knew is packed full of murders, fraud, blackmail and past misdeeds in Rhodesia.

The Man who Knew is a man who has information on literally everyone. It's interesting watching him work - and pay close attention at the end. Constable Wiseman is a local policeman, has his suspect and doggedly sticks to him.

This is a fun read and not too long (2,390 locations). Definitely worth getting if you like late 19th Century, early 20th Century mysteries.

If you even moderately enjoy Edgar Wallace you'll surely enjoy this one. A great mystery that kept me guessing until the end. It is old school writing and obviously an old school mystery tale.

Wow! What a read. This is an incredibly fine bit of story telling by Edgar Wallace, one of his best. A murder mystery, a love triangle, a who dunnit of extraordinary complexity. More twists and turns than a bobsled track, with a surprise ending that is absolutely staggering, this is a page turner that will astound you in the end. If you like Edwardian mysteries and enjoy a well told tale, you will love this one.

I thought this was a fairly interesting book as I read it, but it ended suddenly and with next to no real justification to the reader for that ending. I do not intend ever to read another book by this author.

Great mystery novel. One of the best I've read over my 74 years.

Another great Edgar Wallace. The 4th one I read in the past two weeks. The start is a bit slower this time than usually, but once you have reached the second half of the book, it becomes unputdownable.
