Book Description‘Down under Donavan’ follows an ex-convict who strikes it rich gambling, but as the famous philosopher from Brooklyn, Notorious B.I.G once suggested "Mo’ Money, Mo’ Problems", and soon a murder lies in the wake of his new found fortune. Wallace weaves an intricate and detailed plot around an ensemble of brilliant characters of gangsters, colonial officers, vile aristocrats and damsels in distress. It is a book with a phenomenal pace and stunning plot twists, a perfect read for fans of the thriller mysteries or anyone who loved Mark Wahlberg’s ‘The Gambler’. Edgar Wallace (1875-1932) was an English writer, poet and journalist. He was such a prolific writer that his publisher claimed his work could account for a quarter of all books sold in England. He wrote countless books, screenplays, poems and historical non-fiction, spawning over one hundred and sixty films based on his work. He unfortunately passed away suddenly before he could see his most famous creation ‘King Kong’ come to life. It has been adapted several times over the years, notably by Peter Jackson of Lord of the Rings fame, and more recently in ‘Godzilla vs Kong’ starring Millie Bobby Brown.
