Colonial Administrator Sanders is known for exploiting the people of Liberia. But when he encounters the one man three steps ahead of him, all that is about to change.
Both a conman and a crook, escaped convict turned tribal chief Bosambo is ready to outwit Sanders and his crew. He is nevertheless fiercely loyal to him and ready to spring to his rescue in times of need.
Weaving another rip-roaring tale in the ‘Sanders of the River’ adventure series, Wallace’s novel – and 1935 film starring Paul Robeson and Leslie Banks – is ideal for fans of the 2016 blockbuster hit, ‘The Legend of Tarzan’.
Edgar Wallace (1875-1932) was an English writer so prolific, that his publisher claimed that he was responsible for a quarter of all books sold in England.
An author, journalist, and poet, Wallace wrote countless novels, short stories, screenplays, and stage plays, along with historical non-fiction. His work has been adapted into more than 160 films.
In 1932, Wallace died suddenly in Hollywood, during the initial drafting of his most famous work, ‘King Kong’.
