The Nine Bears

‘The Nine Bears’ introduces us for the first time to the brilliant Scotland Yard Detective Elk, on assignment to track down some shady financiers causing havoc with the global markets. It is a plot worthy of a Bond film, an overarching criminal organisation of white collared financiers bending world politics and trade to their will, packed with action, adventure, gorgeous description and despicable villains. It is the stunning introduction of one of literatures most beloved Detectives, perfect for any fans of Bond or Holmes. The names Elk, Detective Elk.

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.
