The Vanished Guest

A novel by

When his car breaks down in a quiet country lane, a chance encounter with a British intelligence agent scuppers any plans John Gawthorpe might have had for a quiet holiday. Belsham, the agent in question, pleads with Gawthorpe to help him evade his pursuers - but when Belsham is kidnapped from under his very nose, Gawthorpe feels duty bound to track down his vanished guest and ensure that his vital mission is seen through to completion...

The Rev. Ottwell Binns was an English clergyman, who also harboured an enthusiasm for the less holy delights of pulp fiction and cinematic B-movies - an enthusiasm which bore fruit in a number of thrillers, written under the pseudonym of Ben Bolt. Originally published in 1930, The Vanished Guest is an old-fashioned yarn, replete with international criminals, spies, car chases and damsels in distress!
