Edgar Wallace's 1931 novel "The Devil Man" is the mysterious and thrilling story of Charles Pearce, an small, unnerving, musician, gifted but terribly boastful. Woman can't resist him, but they don't know the real Pearce. Full of dispense, action and amusing characters, "The Devil Man" constitutes a veritable page-turner that fans of crime fiction won't want to miss. Many vintage books such as this had been becoming increasingly rare or expensive. This volume is now republished in an available, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
