Format: Hardcover
This Mundy novel was also published under the title "The King in Check". I have already written reviews for the Mundy titles "The Ivory Trail" and "King of the Khyber Rifles". If you would like to get an idea of how much I enjoy Talbot Mundy books, check out those books and my reviews. This time I am going to quote from the blurb of "The King in Check", A. L. Burt edition as I think that it will tell you all you need to know about this great book: "The King in Check" is a highly exciting adventure story in which there again appears that famous hero of Mr. Mundy's special creation - Jimgrim or James Schuyler Grim. Jimgrim is an American secret service agent, at present in the employ of the British in Jerusalem. With him in the present novel are his faithful sikh shadow, Narayan Singh; as well as Ramsden, an American and Jeremy Ross, an ex-soldier of the Australian forces, both eager for a fight of any kind. This opportunity soon presents itself, as the abmitions of the French in Syria arouse the enmity of King Feisal of the Arabs. For his aid in WWI, the Allies have promised Feisal the kingship of Syria, Palestine and Trans-Jordania. This promise they have not kept however and the French are out to discredit or kill the Arab chieftain. To further their ends, an order is forged, ostensibly from Feisal to his Arab adherents which calls for a massacre of the Jews in Jerusalem. When this message is intercepted, Jimgrim rapidly swings into action. With Ramsden and Ross as volunteers, he matches wits and weapons with the powerful plotters who are financed by the French...(Jimgrim) proceeds to Damascus and smears the intrigue against Feisal.Read more ›
