Beschreibung von Audible
Journalist, novelist, politician, agitator, spy - this author's life would make better reading than any of his fiction. Still, this spy thriller raised a lot of commotion when first published in 1903. Indeed, it spawned a whole genre. It is a first-person tale of stereotypical young Englishmen on the scent of German spies in the North Sea. This is all very conventional Edwardian fare except for the loving details of yachting and the prophetic hint of German imperial ambition. Dermot Kerrigan has the right sound for the hero/storyteller - youthful, energetic, just a bit strident.
