This is my review of the book The Czar's Spy by William Le Queux, which I listened to recently as a librivox recording. https://librivox.org/the-czars-spy-by-william-le-queux/
This is quite a long story, taking nearly 10 hours to listen to and covered several trips up and down the motorway. Not always the best way of listening to a thriller, but certainly great at keeping one awake and alert when travelling.
This story was written in 1905 just as the tensions were beginning to mount before the First World War. It is a story of intrigue and espionage that travels across Europe in the true spirit of a good mystery. There are shootings, burglaries, romances, escapes from prisons, and intricate conspiracies that surprise.
As such it goes along at a good pace and keeps one guessing right until the end as to what was the truth.
This was an enjoyable tale and I will endeavour to listen to more of Le Queux's tales over time.
I will record this as book 27 week 22 fiction 25 (audio books 4) non fiction 2
