The Four, working outside the law, take it upon themselves to clean things up in their own way.

    In his Four Just Men series, Edgar Wallace comes up with something different: the ‘villains’ are not necessarily bad people, and the pursuers of justice, the Four Just Men, as they call themselves, are acting outside the law. They argue that their actions are for the public good, and dispassionately eke the ultimate revenge — death — on their victims. In their turn, the Four Just Men are pursued by the police, but somehow remain our heroes.

    Mr J G Reeder, a brilliant and quietly unassuming detective, is a middle aged man whose speciality for more than twenty years has been to deal exclusively with bank robbers and forgers. "I see evil in everything," he declares, "… in dying rose bushes, in horseshoes - in poetry even. I have the mind of a criminal. It is deplorable!" In these four casefiles, The Poetical Policeman, The Treasure Hunt, The Troupe, and The Stealer of Marble, the sheer genius of Mr Reeder shines forth.
