BULL-DOG DRUMMOND AT BAY - Sapper
Another preposterous adventure from H C McNeile aka 'Sapper'. Published in 1935 it finds our hero Hugh Drummond involved in a plot that has military secrets, nasty Germans and a Russian killer.
Its totally over the top but as with all these stories very entertaining and a 'time capsule' of the between the wars period.
Harmless fun and the author is nowhere near as derogatory towards Jews and the non white races in this volume, which removes much of the cringe factor of the earlier stories.
