Book Description Hodder and Stoughton, London, 1928. Cloth. Condition: Very Good. No Jacket. Third Edition November 1928. This is a heavy book and extra postage will be requested to all destinations outside of the United Kingdom.This book is fitted with a removable, clearcover, dustwrapper, film.Spine on blue cloth boards is slightly faded and corners are slightly bumped and rubbed.There is foxing on the fore edges and top edges of the pages and very occasionally throughout.The previous owners bookplate is attached to the inside of the front board and January 1929 is written on the front free endpaper.Otherwise a nice, clean, tight copy.Introduction reads,'Peace at last.I can scarcely believe we have beaten them.Yet tonight bonfires were flaming the wonderful news aross the downs and Bill Bradley says London has gone wild.Dear Bill ! he knew I would be sorrowing while all England rejoiced, and he turned his back on the junketings in town to motor down to Sussex and comfort me.He has been so patient, so understanding, through all these agonising months of uncertainty that tonight, before he left, I promised to give him answer at Christmas, if by then there is no news.How should there be any news ? The British mission which gone into germany has been ordered to make the closest inquiries; but what more can they do than the Red Cross, the Crown Princess of Sweden (bless her golden English heart !), the King of Spain, the Vatican, all the high neutral sources which have already tried and failed?It is so bitter hard to abandon hope.And yet I haven't much faith left.It is eighteen months since I last heard: and they are quite definite when I see them in Whitewall.Well may they call it the Secret Service!Shall I ever forget the furtive little office, high above the stir of the embankment, the tidy desk, with just a telephone and some letter trays, and behind it my Nigel's Chief, that frightening old man, whose eyes were yet so gentle as he told me I must make my mind up for the worst?To ease my mind of it grief, to clear it for this decision I feel I owe it to poor Bill, I have resolved to write my story.Perhaps I shall find solace in the very anguish of living in memory once more through the phases of that extraordinary adventure which Nigel Druce and I first confronted together.The last bonfire has flickered out.Not a dog barks: the countryside is deathly still, blanketed in the November seasmist that clings pearling to the diamond panes of my cottage window.But shadowy figures come thronging about my lamp:dear Lucy Varley, my little major, the Pellegrini with her her flaming hair, Rudi von Linz, dapper and debonair, Pater Vedastus, as I first saw him, leaning on his spade in the garden of The Crouching Beast, Clubfoot, the grim and sinister cripple who stood in the forefront of those who brought down untold misery upon the world and on me.And my Nigel.God help me! Of him it will be hardest to write.OLIVIA DUNBAR 11th November 1918.'. Hardback. Seller Inventory # 000078
