Wallace, Edgar, The Man Who Bought London

King Kerry is going to buy London. This morning he is on his way to buy shops in Oxford Street. Elsie Marion is late for work when she falls into conversation with him. Suddenly two shots ring out. They miss, but King Kerry seems to know his attacker. From a high office window a man shakes his fist: someday, the man vows, 'I will find a bullet that goes to its mark - and the girl from Denver City will be free!'
