Edgar Wallace

The Secret of the Moat Farm

Known across the UK as ‘The Moat Farm Murder,’ ‘The Secret of Moat Farm’ sees Wallace as his investigative-journalist best.
At the age of 28, the author was sent to cover the developments in this true-crime story.
In 1903, Camille Holland and Samuel Dougal apparently went on a shopping trip. However, suspicions arose when Dougal returned alone, saying that Camille had caught a train to London.
Wallace offers insights into the criminal mind, alongside all the facts that made this one of the most gripping and tragic stories of its time.
A must for fans of true-crime such as Netflix's ´Night Stalker: The Hunt For a Serial Killer´, and those who want an introduction to Wallace’s work.

Born in London, 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.

Leaving school at the age of 12, Wallace made his first steps into the literary world by selling newspapers on the corner of Fleet Street.

He worked as a war correspondent after joining the army at age 21, which honed his writing abilities. This led to the creation of his first book ‘The Four Just Men.’

Wallace is best remembered as the co-creator of ‘King Kong,’ which has been adapted for film 12 times (most notably directed by ‘Lord of the Rings’ director, Peter Jackson, and starring Jack Black and Naomi Watts).

However, he leaves behind an extensive body of work, including stories such as ‘The Crimson Circle’ and ‘The Flying Squad’.
