Four freedom fighters who have survived torture and imprisonment at the hands of repressive regimes swear to bring vengeance on the highly placed bankers, politicians, munitions manufacturers, and corrupt officials who make the existence of such tyrannies possible. In Edgar Wallace's The Four Just Men, as one person after another, whose hands are stained with the blood of innocents, is assassinated, the police of Europe are mobilized. But no one knows who the Four Just Men are or how they perform their assassinations, often in the midst of a cordon of police protection. Then Scotland Yard puts its greatest detective on the case. But whose side are his sympathies on? As the clues pile up and the police close in, the Four Just Men swear to commit one last act of assassination, no matter what the danger. The world waits breathless with one question on its mind. Can they be stopped and should they be stopped?
