The Green Rust

The Green Rust by Edgar Wallace
By: (1875-1932)

Edgar Wallace, perhaps best known for creating King Kong, wrote dozens of novels. The Green Rust, his twelfth crime novel, is one of three books he published in 1919. It begins at the English home of the severely ill American millionaire, John Millinborn. With him are his best friend, Kitson, and a local doctor, the Dutch (or is he?) van Heerden. He is murdered in the first chapter, having just left his fortune to his niece, Oliva, whom he has never met. Before he dies, he asks Kitson to find and watch over Oliva. (Introduction by Kirsten Wever)

A damn good yarn with plenty of humorous moments Kirsten Wever is a fine reader who does an evil German genius very well I shall look for other stories she narrates.

Subject: Green Rust
A really good story with many turns and light humour included along with e mystery itself. Kirsten Wever does an excellent job of reading the story and it is so very pleasant to have one reader only.
