About the Author
Sapper (18881937) was the pen name of Herman Cyril McNeile, chosen because he served for some years with the Royal Engineers, who are popularly known as "sappers." His most famous character, the formidable Bulldog Drummond, inspired a hugely popular series and several films, making Sapper one of the most popular novelists of his generation. Robert Giddings is an eminent literary critic who reviews for such publications as the Guardian, the New Statesman, and the Sunday Times.
