A fast-moving easy read; a straightforward spy novel. Despite being set a hundred years ago, in a pre-WW1 England, with its Old Country peculiarities including household servants everywhere and passenger trains that stop at every tiny hamlet, it doesn't really seem to be dated. As with any spy story, it requires suspension of disbelief, especially regarding the seemingly endless ingenuity of the protagonists at squeezing out of impossible situations. But that's what makes the genre so entertaining.
