    1. A rather exciting classic murder mystery, I'll recommend it to any reader inclined to such

    2. A Classic British Crime NovelEdgar Wallace was England's famous King of the Thrillers, churning out almost 200 novels in his career. They say in the 20's and 30's, one in every four books read in England was a Wallace novel. Written in 1922, The Crimson Circle was one of his more famous works which was later made into a film.This novel has the same charm as Scaramouche by Rafael Sabatini, or The Scarlet Pimpernel by The Baroness Orczy. Some of that can be ascribed to the manners and behaviors of [...]

    3. A very nicely plotted and well-written book of its type - it's not literature, and doesn't pretend to be. I am reading books of this kind as research, to discover little social details (though this is set post-WW1, there are many points in common with Holmes' world), and to get a feel for the changes in language between then and now. This is one of the best Edgar Wallace stories I've read so far (and the man was a master of his craft). I thought I knew the identity of the villain (but I was some [...]

    4. Quite typical of Edgar Wallace but definitely one his better works. I used to read a lot of him when I was a teenager and this bought back quite a few memories. More thriller than detective story but none the worse for that. It wasn't difficult to spot who was the villain but there was an interesting twist at the end. Inspector Parr is a very engaging character: I wonder if he is featured in any other stories.Good stuff in a schoolboyish way. I enjoyed it!

    5. Really this book deserves 2 1/2 stars It was a servicable mystery but I figured out who The Crimson Circle was about 2/3 in & also deduced most of the other twist as well. Generally I am not good at solving mysteries before the detective, so I view my ability to solve this one as a sign that it wasn't that difficult. I enjoyed the characters & again I found Wallace's work to be surprisingly undated (well, undated in the sense it could have been written in the 1950's instead of the 1910's [...]

    6. Giallo molto intrigante. Situazioni apparentemente inspiegabili e 'inutili' alla fine si rivelano indizi decisivi. Sarebbe bastato che stessi più attenta a "quella certa incongruenza" che avevo individuato e mi suonava strana, ma che poi ho trascurato, e avrei indovinato il colpevole!

    7. Един представител на жанра, който запали отново желанието ми да търся такива книги. Определено няма да е последната от него, която ще съм чел!

    8. The mysterious Crimson Circle is a high-level protection society: pay them, or you die. Every wealthy man goes in fear of them if he's smart, and dies if he isn't. The Circle has many minions, including the mysterious and beautiful Thalia Drummond, and many wealthy and high-powered potential victims, and Inspector Parr and private investigator Derrick Yale had better figure out the Crimson Circle's identity before it's too late!This is lots of fun, with romance, thrills (of the 1920s variety), a [...]

    9. I happened across this book during a used book sale, and noticed a very musty old leather bound book. This was it. I read through it and found it was a really well written, and exciting mystery. There's a bit of romance, but not so much that it becomes stuffy. You can honestly, barely notice it. The murder mystery was really fun, and I've enjoyed reading it a few times.

    11. Red herringsWhat a complicated and devious route the author works through on his way to the end revelations almost us tempted to re-read a few back chapters to see if the end us justified by the earlier events if the plot .

    12. Perhaps Wallace's most famous mystery novel, a crimson circle became Wallace's trademark being on the cover of his subsequent books.With any mystery novel it's important not to give anything away so I'll just say lots of murder, blackmail and escaped convicts, all in all Wallace at his best.

    13. Finale sorprendente ed inaspettato. Peccato che il resto del libro sia a tratti noiosi.

    14. Not one of Wallace's better books but still thoroughly enjoyable with a good (although forced) twist at the end.

    15. This was a fun read. Lots of twists and turns. I loved the characters and the roles they played. It kept me guessing the whole time.

    16. Pretty good. I wasn't sure until the last few pages "who dun it." Generally likable characters and a plot you can follow.
