About the Author

Edgar Wallace, born on April 1, 1875, in Greenwich, London, was a prolific English writer, leaving an indelible mark on the fields of crime fiction, suspense, and journalistic writing. Renowned for his lightning-fast literary pace, Wallace produced an astonishing number of books, plays, and articles throughout his career, with 'The Coat of Arms' being one of the jewels in his literary crown. Wallace's early experience as a war correspondent and his service in the medical corps during the Second Boer War provided fertile ground for the development of his distinct narrative style, characterized by brisk pacing, suspenseful plots, and vivid characters. This style would come to influence future generations of thriller writers. While 'The Coat of Arms' exemplifies his skill in weaving complex mysteries with high stakes, Wallace is perhaps best known for creating the iconic character, 'J.G. Reeder' and penning the celebrated 'King Kong' (Del Rey, 2005). His extensive catalog, comprising over 170 novels, 960 short stories, and various stage plays, has cemented his legacy as a master storyteller. Edgar Wallace's work continues to be studied and revered, with his novels often praised for their atmospheric tension and groundbreaking narrative techniques, hallmarks of his pioneering contribution to the thriller and crime genres. Wallace's untimely death in 1932 left a void in the literary world, but his body of work endures as a testament to his remarkable talent and robust imagination.
