Middlemarch and The Four Just Men on Booklist Magazine’s 2011 Editors’ Choice list

WALLACE, E.: Four Just Men (The) (Unabridged)

The mysterious Four Just Men are wealthy Europeans who move easily in high society but, capable of convincing disguise and brilliant acting, are as likely to be found on the street corners of London as at the dinner tables of Paris and Rome. They are the ultimate vigilantes. Their job is to exact justice where governments and police are hamstrung. They work outside the law—and set about their business with grim precision.
