The Four Just Men (1905) is a political thriller by Edgar Wallace. The book that launched Wallace's career as one of England's leading popular fiction writers, The Four Just Men was released in conjunction with a newspaper competition allowing readers to guess the truth behind the unsolved mystery at the end of the novel. Like many of Wallace's stories and novels, The Four Just Men was adapted into a silent film in 1921 before being made into a popular television series in 1959. At a small café in the city of Cadiz, four men gather to discuss the affairs of the world. Together, this Englishman, Frenchman, Italian, and Spaniard are known as "The Four Just Men." Using their power and influence as businessman and aristocrats, these unlikely vigilantes have become humanity's only hope for justice, a unified front against corruption, abuse, and anarchy. As news of their brotherhood spreads, gaining them the attention of numerous international intelligence agencies, their list of targets dwindles with each successful move they make. Justifying their use of murder through a dedicated application of morality, "The Four Just Men" rid the world of sex traffickers, factory owners, politicians on the take, and countless others who seem always to threaten human life without facing the consequences. The first in a series of six novels, The Four Just Men is an absolute thrill ride from start to finish. With a beautifully designed cover and professionally typeset manuscript, this edition of Edgar Wallace's The Four Just Men is a classic political thriller reimagined for modern readers.
