A novel by

 
 
Vintage roaring twenties mystery with the panache and style of the era, this is POISON SHADOWS by William Le Queux in an uncommon collectible first edition hardcover from 1927, publ. by the Macaulay Co NY and in England under the title "The Chamelon". Le Queux mainly wrote in the genres of mystery, thriller, and espionage, particularly in the years leading up to World War I, when his partnership with British publishing magnate Lord Northcliffe led to the serialised publication and intensive publicising (including actors dressed as German soldiers walking along Regent Street) of pulp-fiction spy stories and invasion literature such as The Invasion of 1910, The Poisoned Bullet, and Spies of the Kaiser. These works were a common phenomenon in pre-WWI Europe, involving fictionalised stories of possible invasion or infiltration by foreign powers
