A novel by

 
 
The Stretton Street Affair, by William le Queux is a gripping mystery novel that will entice you to keep reading it from start to finish. Written by an underrated master of fiction from the early 20th century, the novel might not seem like it would promise much due to it having been largely forgotten by the public during the past century. However, le Queux's remarkable plot twists, complex characters and engaging style invites us into a world where nothing is as it seems, and often the most unlikely of outcomes is the one we should expect the most.

William Tufnell Le Queux was a British author and journalist who has published a few insightful works, while also having refined his work researching and writing about war and espionage during the First Balkan War and WWI.

Among works such as The Czar's Spy, Mademoiselle of Monte Carlo and The Secret of the Fox Hunter, The Stretton Street Affair stands out as a novel with an engaging plot that can still present many intriguing ideas and plot developments that are far from being outdated. The novel itself is written around a conspiracy theory similar to those that have come many years after, and the author makes its delivery worth every second you spend on reading it.

The plot focuses on a war veteran named Hugh Garfield, who gets mixed up in an affair of deceit and evil, and finds himself witnessing a strange death that he is asked to turn a blind eye to, only to later wake up in an unknown place without being able to remember how he got there.

The story is extremely unpredictable and surprisingly intense - even terrifying in some areas. If you want a mystery novel that can truly give you a unique and enticing reading experience, The Stretton Street Affair may be just what you're looking for.
