Set in Edwardian-era London, Gabriel Syme is recruited at Scotland Yard to a secret anti-anarchist police corps. He meets Lucian Gregory, an anarchist poet, at a party where they debate the meaning of poetry. Their chance encounter leads to an exciting story of deception, double-crossing, subterfuge, and secret identities. An enduring story, many have noted the book’s influence on surrealism and spy thrillers.
First published in 1908, this edition is derived from the original book. As always, this edition is complete and unabridged.
