The sequel to The Lost World, Arthur Conan Doyle's Poison Belt reunites the ever-popular Professor Challenger, intrepid journalist Edward Malone, dashing Lord John Roxton, and the querulous Professor Summerlee for yet another adventure.

When a sinister poison envelops the earth, the entire human race teeters on the brink of destruction, forcing the comrades to implement a desperate plan for survival.

A cryptic telegram, a mysterious airborne poison, and an eerie journey around post-apocalyptic London - this is vintage Conan Doyle. Glen McCready?s exhilarating reading brings all the tension and excitement of this classic tale vividly to life.

    " This isn't so bad, but it isn't another Lost World, and it does stretch my credulity at times. "

    " I'm not sure I caught the point of this book - the ending made Prof. Challenger's experiment absolutely unnecessary. That's all I'm saying or else I'd have spoilers. :) "

    " A very interesting book about the end of the world. Very reflective and somber. Not the catastrophic end, not violent, but an end, in which the characters are forced to be very intropective. Enjoyed very much "

    " Doyle presciently saw that earth would pass through a poisonous belt of ether, perhaps killing nearly all mankind. Documented by the incomparable William Pène du Bois's ink drawings. "

About the Author

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (1859–1930) was born of Irish parentage in Scotland. He studied medicine at the University of Edinburgh, but he also had a passion for storytelling. His first book introduced that prototype of the modern detective in fiction, Sherlock Holmes. Despite the immense popularity Holmes gained throughout the world, Doyle was not overly fond of the character and preferred to write other stories. Eventually popular demand won out and he continued to satisfy readers with the adventures of the legendary sleuth. He also wrote historical romances and made two essays into pseudoscientific fantasy: The Lost World and The Poison Belt.
