In which Fraulein Dollman is shocked ...

... and the story begins to really pick up the pace. Yes, more of The Riddle of the Sands awaits you at Forgotten Classics. Enjoy!


  1. In some ways Riddle of the Sands reminds me of another book I read earlier this year called The Czar's Spy by William Le Queux which was written in 1905. I guess this is an even earlier spy novel where a man gets caught up in international intrigue - fairly enjoyable and available also on Librivox I believe.

    Maybe what I find familiar is the pre-World War world views.

  2. In fact, I have that in my "to listen" queue for LibriVox. Interesting ... I like those preWWI views though. They make such entertaining stories.
