    In his Four Just Men series, Edgar Wallace comes up with something different: the ‘villains’ are not necessarily bad people, and the pursuers of justice, the Four Just Men, as they call themselves, are acting outside the law. They argue that their actions are for the public good, and dispassionately eke the ultimate revenge — death — on their victims. In their turn, the Four Just Men are pursued by the police, but somehow remain our heroes.

    Bei seiner Verhaftung in einer Londoner Bank erschießt der jahrelang gesuchte Scheckfälscher und Betrüger Clay Shelton einen Polizisten. Als er daraufhin wegen Mordes angeklagt wird und gehenkt werden soll, veranlasst er als seinen letzten Wunsch das Erscheinen aller freiwillig oder unfreiwillig an seiner Verhaftung und Verurteilung beteiligten Personen, um ihnen seine Rache zu prophezeien. Nach der Hinrichtung Sheltons sind diese Warnungen zunächst vergessen, bis Inspektor Long - maßgeblich an dessen Verhaftung beteiligt - nur knapp einem Mordanschlag entgeht.
