Reeder Despite his insignificant appearance Reeder is a cold and ruthless detective who credits his success to his. How the devil do you know that he blurtedMr Reeder s smile was one of self depreciation One picks up odd scraps of information he said apologetically I I see wrong in everything That is my curious perversion I have a criminal mind Mr JG Reeder as a character is the epitome of the phrase looks can be deceiving Created by Edgar Wallace one of the most prolific thriller writers of the 20th century and the author who created the legendary character King Kong John G Reeder is an unpretentious mild mannered rather old fashioned investigator working for the Director of Public Prosecutions and who is attributed with an amazing insight into ways the in which criminal thought process happen His specialty is financial crimes and forgeries and his ability to literally think like a criminal allows him to be one step ahead of his criminal adversaries and crack crimes with ease The Casefiles of Mr JG Reeder compiles two novels featuring JG Reeder Room 13 and Terror Keep and a collection of short stories which was previously published as The Mind of Mr J G Reeder The fictional investigator Mr JG Reeder was introduced in the novel Room 13 a tautly written crime novel with a decent dosage of mystery and romance In this novel Wallace presents Reeder as a master of financial investigation who with his computer like brain and mysterious nature send shivers through the criminal underworld in which he is simply known as the man who knows everything In Room 13 the plot revolves around an investigation into a major counterfeiting operation in this novel Reeder is working as an investigative consultant to a major bank There is intrigue romance revenge and grim descriptions of the criminal underbelly and prisons in this novel as Reeder try to bust the ring of counterfeiters controlled by someone known only as Big Printer This novel was adapted into a movie Mr Reeder in Room 13 in 1941 In the subseuent Reeder stories Wallace presents the investigator as an employee of the Director of Public Prosecutions which allows the author for making the character dealing with a range of crimesIn Terror Keep we see a evolved character of Reeder and the storyline is also exciting and engaging like a thriller than the previous novel Terror Keep pits Reeder against the most dangerous of his adversaries John Flack an inmate of Broadmoor Criminal Asylum for a string of murders He was put behind the bars by Reeder and in the opening of the novel we see Crazy John Flack escaping from the prison to seek revenge upon Reeder When Reeder knows about Flack s escape he was concerned for the safety of his friend Miss Margaret Belman as she was the closest Reeder had as an immediate connection he sends her to Larmes Keep a very private boarding house for safety Reeders attempts at tracking down Flack finally leads back to Larmes Keep and has moments of exhilarating thrills and pursuits which all boil down to a pretty decent climax This novel was the last work featuring JG Reeder and the ending of the story fits this decision by Wallace very well The Mind of J G Reeder is a collection of eight short stories featuring this fictional investigator and was the second work in the Reeder series Within these stories Wallace elevates the character who made his initial appearance in the Room 13 as an investigator of financial crimes into a full fledged criminal investigator by broadening the scope of crimes that he encounter Readers will find these short stories pretty intriguing and fast paced as they witness Reeder bringing murderers tricksters and fraudsters to justice while unsettling their plots of bizarre crimesWhen JG Reeder is on the watch criminal entities are guaranteed to fail as even the most bizarre crime can t stand against his powers of deduction And this guaranteed success could also be seen as a negative factor as for a certain extent they make the plots which are engaging and complex a bit predictable These tales which share some similarities with the detective crime fiction from Doyle or Chesterton can intrigue readers who love vintage crime mysteries but many of the fans of modern detective fiction may find these tales a bit old fashioned Actual Rating 35 5 Review added 12 Oct 2015
