    Great Story...not so great e-book

    Fantastic, easy to read WWI spy adventure... but this version has some pretty serious issues. At times so many letters are incorrect you almost feel you are reading in code. Also a few unreadable scanned pages. Go ahead and pay the $1 or $2 for a clean version.

    An excellent tale of early "special Operations" which were part of the English effort in WW I.

    The slightly stylized grammar and sentence structure is fun and an interesting perspective of the writing of the period.
    Almost 100 years old but still a a good read.
    The Victorian/Edwardian setting is conveyed with subtly.

    Religious war in the middle-east

    Scary how prescient Buchan could be - what will happen if the Muslim world rises against the West. Set in Turkey after Gallipoli, and the West's greatest allies are the Russians.
