The Flying Squad: 11/07/15

The Flying Squad by Edgar Wallace isis a thriller set in London during the early days of the Flying Squad.The Flying Squad by Edgar Wallace is a thriller set in London during the early days of the Flying Squad. The Flying Squad is a segment of the Specialist, Organised and Economic Crime Command.

But the Flying Squad in Wallace's novel play an ambiguous role that often teeters in the direction of the antagonist. The main character is a young woman who has been driven to a life of crime after her elderly neighbor disappears. She believes he was killed after being forced into helping the Flying Squad take down a ring of smugglers.

Meanwhile, the woman's on-again off-again boyfriend is a member of the Flying Squad and he's been put in charge of investigating the smuggler's disappearance. In the process, surprise, surprise, he discovers her links to a drug ring.

This book has a lot of loose strings. Plot threads drift in and out and it reads like one of Dickens's serials. I had a hard time finding a plot thread I wanted to follow to its conclusion.

Two stars
