‘The Tomb of Ts’in’ is an adventure novel from acclaimed British author Edgar Wallace, that follows an intrepid treasure hunter through beautiful Chinese vistas in the hunt for a long forgotten tomb. Interestingly the story predates the actual discovery of the tomb by some sixty years.
The story itself is humorous, fast paced and exotic, perfect for anyone interested to see what a British Indiana Jones might be like. He probably hates snakes too.
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.
