The Czar's Spy

The Czar's Spy by William Le Queux
By: (1864-1927)

William Le Queux was a British novelist and prolific writer of mysteries. Indeed, mystery surrounds the author himself as to whether he was a spy or rather just a self-promoter. Regardless of which is true, Le Queux brings us a story of intrigue and espionage that travels across Europe in the true spirit of a good mystery. There are shootings, burglaries, romances, escapes from prisons, and intricate conspiracies that may surprise and leave you scratching your head as you try to solve this “whodunit”. In the best tradition of a good mystery however, you may need to wait for the final chapters to discover the truth.

This has to be one of the most idiotic books I have listened to, so much so I was compelled to continue listening to hear what act of stupidity the protagonists would do next. Tom reads very well but is let down by the awful mispronounciation of virtually all British place name ( Trafalgar Square baffled me for a while ) and some words which I thought common both sides of the pond, which is a shame as otherwise he has a good clear voice.
