Cool crime picture

I love this illustration. It's beautifully drawn, with dramatic 'lighting' and a real sense of menace as well as style. The illustrator is new to me - Jack Faulks. It illustrates a tense scene from one of a series of crime stories set in the Far East by Henry De Vere Stacpoole, the author of The Blue Lagoon. It's from the March 1929 edition of The Strand.
