" This spy thriller was written about, and during, WWI. It takes its characters from England to Turkey and shows off the versatility of British and American espionage. This particular edition is peppered with footnotes, most of which I needed because I was unfamiliar with Scottish, Afrikaans and various aspects of hot topics in 1916. Alas, only after I finished the book did I realize I should have skipped all the introductory text, which included, of all things, an epilogue note. "
