His Adventures on a Secret Mission for Queen Elizabeth

Author: Robert Neilson Stephens

Author: Joseph Kerby

My Adventures as a German Secret Service Agent

2010.11.05

(image)

Author: Horst von der Goltz

Language: English

Published: 1917

This book is a sort of galloping summary of the last ten years of my existence. It has been my fortune to be a witness--and sometimes an actor--in that drama of secret diplomacy which has been going on for so long and which in such a large way has been responsible for this World War.




The Gay Adventure

2010.10.02

A Romance

Author: Richard Bird

Language: English

Published: 1914

A brain-relaxing book. It is all romance and adventure, impossibility and improbability. No such people could be in real life, and it is not often that one finds them in fiction. The author has a pleasant style; he writes as if he enjoyed what he wrote and expects his readers to enjoy it with him. There is a lot of fun in the book, but it is not always of the highest order. The characters are English and the scene is laid in England, London being the headquarters of this gay and festive party.




The Spy in Black

2010.09.28

(image)

Author: J. Storer Clouston

Language: English

Published: 1917

A German U-boat commander tells the story of his escapades as a spy in England. The stories appeared originally in one of the more sensational metropolitan dailies. Vivid and exciting, and very melodramatic.




Honorable Spy

2010.09.12

(image)

Exposing Japanese Military Intrigue in the United States

Author: John L. Spivak

Language: English

Published: 1939

In this small volume I consider a few aspects of espionage and what seem to be preparations for sabotaging the peace and security of the United States by secret Japanese agents who have frequently been working with Nazi agents. The area studied is only one strategic center of American defense, and by the very nature of the subject this study is incomplete even as a sketchy outline. It is offered only as an indication of what one of the aggressor powers is doing.




Inside the Lines

2010.08.12

(image)

Author: Earl Derr Biggers

Language: English

Published: 1915

The story deals with an intrigue to blow up the English squadron at Gibraltar by gaining access to the room where the electrical contact with the harbor mines is made, and on this background Mr. Biggers paints a picture of the scenes following the outbreak of the war which is full of interest.




Spies of the Kaiser

2010.07.31

Plotting the Downfall of England

Author: William le Queux

Language: English

Published: 1909




A Daughter of the Union

2010.06.28

(image)

Author: Lucy Foster Madison

Language: English

Published: 1903

A Boy's Story of the Burning of the City of Washington

Author: James Otis

Language: English

Published: 1907




The Red Symbol

2010.04.02

(image)

Author: John Ironside

Language: English

Published: 1909

One of those once in a while remarkably good stories, with a charming, elusive heroine, with a capital hero, with a perplexing enigma, and with stirring adventures among a secret society of Nihilists, the three elements of romance, mystery, and action are given equal share in the development of a fascinating and complete novel.




Si Klegg, Book 3

2010.03.26

(image)

Si And Shorty Meet Mr. Rosenbaum, The Spy, Who Relates His Adventures

Author: John McElroy

(image)

The German Spy's Secret

Author: Charles Amory Beach

Language: English

Published: 1919

The adventures of young American pilots during World War I in their air-duels with German pilots and their interception of German homing pigeons used to send messages from German spies in France back to Germany." -- "Another thrilling tale of army aviation. Entrusted with a special mission, the young airmen go over the German lines and learn important secrets. They had previously aided an American girl who had a German guardian, and they fall in with this rascal, who tries to make trouble for them. They are captured and sentenced to be shot. How they manage to escape makes reading no boy will want to miss.




The Dark Invader

War-Time Reminiscences of a German Naval Intelligence Officer

Author: Captain Franz von Rintelen

Language: English

Published: 1933




The Count's Chauffeur

2010.01.04

(image)

Being the Confessions of George Ewart, Chauffeur to Count Bindo Di Ferraris

Author: William le Queux

Language: English

Published: 1907

A tale of genteel, smart scoundrelism, and is very ingenious as it keeps the hero of the seeming autobiography somewhat in the dark, thus avoiding explanations of the numerous "coups," and more sordid reasons for the breathless rides en automobile, at the same time stifling the conscience of the reader, as it conveys a verisimilitude of partial innocence throughout on the part of the Count's Chauffeur.

'In Paris, in Rome, in Florence, in Berlin, in Vienna -- in fact, over half the face of Europe, from the Pyrenees to the Russian frontier -- I am now known as "The Count's Chauffeur."'




The Foreign Hand Tie

2009.11.19

(image)

Author: Gordon Randall Garrett

Language: English

Published: 1961

Just because you can "see" something doesn't mean you understand it—and that can mean that even perfect telepathy isn't perfect communication....




The International Spy

2009.11.16

(image)

Being the Secret History of the Russo-Japanese War

Author: Allen Upward

Language: English

Published: 1904

In this story the author makes clear the sinking of the English fishing schooners by the Baltic fleet of Russia and brings in all kinds of events that seemed hallucinations when the story appeared serially, but which have since come true in startling manner.




Below Zero

Author: Ellis Parker Butler

Language: English

Published: 1908




The Treasure Trail

2009.08.16

(image)

A Romance of the Land of Gold and Sunshine

Author: Marah Ellis Ryan

Language: English

Published: 1918

Combining thrills of Mexican-American border life, German-Mexican plots, the adventures of a cowpuncher-miner and the happy termination of his quest for love and wealth, this tale holds the reader's attention from beginning to end.




A Nest of Spies

(image)

(L'agent secret)

Author: Pierre Souvestre

Language: English

Published: 1917

The Four Corners of the World

2009.04.11

(image)

Author: A.E.W. Mason

Language: English

Published: 1917

This is a rather eclectic group of stories.  It contains some very interesting tales of the supernatural, a couple of stories of war-time intrigue, and a drama, though the book is perhaps best known for The Affair at the Semiramis Hotel, which features French detective Inspector Hanaud.  It has a little of everything, just as the book's title suggests.

The Clock -- Green Paint -- North of the Tropic of Capricorn -- One of Them -- Raymond Byatt -- The Crystal Trench -- The House of Terror -- The Brown Book -- The Refuge -- Peiffer -- The Ebony Box -- The Affair at the Semiramis Hotel -- Under Bignor Hill




The Dark Star

2009.03.30

(image)

Author: Robert W. Chambers

Language: English

Published: 1917

A pastor's daughter is inadvertently involved the heist of the famous Dark Star gem. Is there a prince who can save her from ruin and recover the stone?




The Puppet Crown

2009.02.22

(image)

Author: Harold MacGrath

Language: English

Published: 1901

"The Puppet Crown" shows no traces of the hand of a beginner in fiction. The style is terse, strong and clear, the narrative is well sustained, and the dialogue would do no discredit to Anthony Hope, the master in this branch of the story-teller's art. The characters are mostly real people. The only one who impresses the reader as not exactly true to life is Fitzgerald, who could scarcely have spent years in the British army in India and come out of it with so little experience of women and their ways. All the incidental description is strictly subservient to the story, but it is finely done.




Number 70 Berlin

Sant of the Secret Service

2008.11.26

Some Revelations of Spies and Spying

Author: William le Queux

Language: English

Published: 1918

Cheerful, optimistic, and the most modest of men, Gerry Sant has seldom spoken of his own adventures. The son of a certain nobleman who must here remain nameless, and hence the scion of a noble house, he has graduated through all stages of the dark and devious ways of espionage.




Bulldog Drummond

2008.10.04

(image)

Author: Herman Cyril McNeile

Language: English

Published: 1920

Hugh "Bulldog" Drummond, wealthy former officer of the Loamshire Regiment, dashing and strong (but not particularly handsome), places an advertisement in The Times expressing his desire for an adventure -- which arrives in the form of a reply from a young woman concerned for her father. Blackmailers, communist conspiracy, and foreign paymasters of the arch-villain Carl Peterson are encountered and lead to more adventure than Drummond ever dreamed of!




The Mystery of the Green Ray

Language: English

The Dragon's Secret

2008.06.13

(image)

Author: Augusta Huiell Seaman

Language: English

Published: 1920

A metal box, decorated with an elaborately carved dragon, is dug up by Leslie Carter's dog near a supposedly unoccupied cottage. After considerable amateur detective work by two girls the contents prove to be important letters which they prevent Chinese secret service men from stealing.
