Chief of the Intelligence Department Sir Leonard Wallace – bearing always the hall mark of coolness and wit – is up to his earlobes in trouble. Summoned by the Viceroy of India, he makes a rapid flight to India to investigate the mysterious death of British officer Major Elliot and the theft of some very important dispatches.

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'

The Bookbag

'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'

The Bookbag

'absolutely spellbinding . . . I was gripped all the way through and enjoyed the work tremendously. Well recommended.'

Terry Halligan

'Without Alexander Wilson, there is no James Bond, there is no Bourne, there is no George Smiley. Unmissable'.

Tony Parsons

'a romping read . . . James Bond may find he has a worthy rival'

Daily Mail

'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.’
