Being the Startling Adventures of Claud Heathwaite, C.B., of His Britannic Majesty's Foreign Office
The hero and central character of the plot is Claud Heathwaite and he works for the diplomatic service of Great Britain. It is 1912 and, in the course of his duties, he has travelled widely as an attache visiting variously Madrid, Athens, Petrograd and Paris. . Then his world is turned upside down when his father dies suddenly. Dark clouds are gathering as conflict approaches and the world looks over the precipice. For the "discrete" (i.e. secret) service of the British government, he travels to and widely within Russia, sending back information critical to the development of foreign and military policy in London. The action races ahead and, for once, events have a happy ending. This novel contains more explicit references to "love-making" than most contemporary novels of this genre. A good read.
