New authors and collections. Daring tales of kidnap and rescue, assassination and revenge, the politics of death and espionage, these are the themes of this latest volatile concoction of classic and new writing. The days of empire and traditional war have been replaced by cyber warfare but the subtle, lethal methods of agents and spies remain the same, and so has the power of great writing, with stories here to chill and intrigue every reader. Classic authors include Arnold Bennett, Ernest Bramah, John Buchan, G.K. Chesterton, Joseph Conrad, Arthur Conan Doyle, R. Austin Freeman, Rudyard Kipling, Maurice Leblanc, Arthur B. Reeve, Sapper, Ellen Wood.
