A novel by Sydney Horler
1926. Horler, a reporter, later decided to write fiction on a full-time basis. He wrote stories for various periodicals. The turning point in his career came with the publication of his first crime novel The Mystery of No. 1. Many novels followed. He also wrote horror stories. One of the books that brought him to prominence False Face begins: A piece of coal fell to the hearth. The silence was broken. The man who represented the interests of America at the Court of St. James's, leaned forward in his chair. I felt I had to see you personally about this matter, Sir Brian. I need not tell you how importantly we, at the Embassy, regard the business. It will be touch and go every minute of the time while he is here, and-bluntly-what are your plans?
