A crooked merchant banker. The tantalising wealth of a distant relative. A bribe promising to wipe the slate clean. Stephen Narth needs pund50,000 to keep out of prison. When his uncle unexpectedly offers a solution, an exciting and dangerous journey to China begins. But Narth must pull the strings of fate to secure his future. And time waits for no one when seedy businessmen and corrupt assassins are at hand. Who will keep their side of the bargain? And more importantly, will Narth come out on top? Outlandishly fun and outrageously daring, Edgar Wallace’s thriller ‘The Yellow Snake’ is perfect for fans of ‘Peaky Blinders’.Edgar Wallace (1875-1932) was an English writer so prolific, that his publisher claimed that he was responsible for a quarter of all books sold in England. An author, journalist and poet, Wallace wrote countless novels, short stories, screen plays, stage plays, along with historical non-fiction. His work has been adapted into more than 160 films. In 1932, Wallace died suddenly in Hollywood, during the initial drafting of his most famous work, ‘King Kong’.
