What The Critics Said
'An exciting introduction to an accomplished, long-overlooked crime writer, and to a cool, intelligent hero'
Good Book Guide
'If you enjoyed the crime fiction of the era, Campion being a case in point, or more so if you followed Hannay's adventures beyond The 39 Steps, then you'll love this'
'Vintage spy fiction, this intriguing forerunner to the work of Ian Fleming and John Le Carre is exciting and engrossing'
Good Book Guide
'This is the first of the Wallace stories, which were extremely popular at the time. If they're all up to this standard, then their re-release is long overdue'
'absolutely spellbinding . . . I was gripped all the way through and enjoyed the work tremendously. Well recommended.'
'Without Alexander Wilson, there is no James Bond, there is no Bourne, there is no George Smiley. Unmissable'.
'a romping read . . . James Bond may find he has a worthy rival'
'acclaimed work . . . very attractive editions'
‘The dialogue is reminiscent of that in the early Agatha Christie novels, and there is an air of Simon Templar about Wallace, who seems to be always one step ahead of everyone else.’
