Oppenheim, E. Phillips, The Spy Paramount

E. Phillips Oppenheim was one of the greatest writers of spy fiction, known in his time as the Prince of Storytellers. To launch their Spy Classics series, the British Library is proud to introduce Oppenheim and his classic work to a new reading public.
           
The Spy Paramount takes us to Rome, 1934. American Martin Fawley, a former secret service agent, is recruited as a spy by General Berati, the most feared man in fascist Italy. Going undercover to Monte Carlo, Fawley travels in a world of casinos and cocktails, high stakes and secrecy—and discovers the secret weapon that could determine the outcome of the looming world war.
