The Czar's Spy

William Le Queux

Book Overview: 

William Le Queux was a British novelist and prolific writer of mysteries. Indeed, mystery surrounds the author himself as to whether he was a spy or rather just a self-promoter. Regardless of which is true, Le Queux brings us a story of intrigue and espionage that travels across Europe in the true spirit of a good mystery. There are shootings, burglaries, romances, escapes from prisons, and intricate conspiracies that may surprise and leave you scratching your head as you try to solve this “whodunit”. In the best tradition of a good mystery however, you may need to wait for the final chapters to discover the truth.

This tale takes the reader in a slalom excursion from Italy to England to Finland and Russia and back again. The reason for this journey is to solve a mystery but only ad

One of the best, most well-written, suspense stories I've read in a very long time. And think it was first published in 1905... let's go back to how people wrote then. Simple, beautiful, fascinating.

This is an entertaining tale of intrigue, international spies, and mystery. One little fact leads to another in an innocent succession which ends with quite a task for Gordon Gregg. The latter is the hero of the day; he saves Elma from a set of mighty powerful foes that threaten his own life not onl
