I really love free Kindle books and have downloaded several from this author, Sax Romer. He lived from 1883 to 1959 and his books I have read so far are set in the late 19th century or early 20th. The language is a little stilted, like the Sherlock Holmes books, but the mysteries are interesting and I enjoying trying to solve them and always being wrong.

This particular story was very interesting because the item involved is a slipper reportedly worn by Muhammad. A fanatical group devoted to protecting this relic is determined to return it to its rightful location, and the hero gets caught in the middle trying to protect it for a museum. Lots of adventure and mystery.

I noticed in the tag suggestions that "erotica" is included--that has to be an error. The women are very chaste and a smile is about as flirtatious as things get.

on and on complaints about orientals taking over the world, oily jews and Italians. Muslims murdering for a pair of slippers even if the person involved is innocent of wrongdoing.Fortunately we have the extremely superior Englishman to save us.
