Edgar Wallace (1875-1932) was one of the world's best-selling thriller authors, publishing hundreds of books and stories and over twenty-five plays. His work is sadly considered dated nowadays, which is a shame. His stories of The Just Men, J. G. Reeder, The Green Archer, Sanders of the River, and many other characters took readers of the first third of the twentieth century far beyond their easy chairs to sensational realms of adventure, danger, and crime.
"Criminal at Large," based on Wallace's stage play originally titled The Case of the Frightened Lady (1931) and filmed as The Frightened Lady (1941), first aired the radio in April 1944.
