The Man Who Bought London

‘The Man Who Bought London’ follows the American King Kerry, an absurdly rich real estate tycoon who spends his time buying up swathes of London real estate to redevelop for the benefit of the poorer members of society. However his plans are disrupted by a former business associate who threatens to thwart his efforts. Under this immense pressure will the Good Samaritan persona crumble?

It is a novel with brilliantly fast action, a stunning cast of characters and punchy dialogue layered over with a healthy dose of subversion. If you loved ‘Succession’ we guarantee you’ll love this classic caper.

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.
