Publisher's Summary

Demobilised officer, finding peace incredibly tedious, would welcome diversion. Legitimate if possible; excitement essential. When Captain Hugh Drummond, DSO, MC placed that advertisement, he was looking for adventure. What he finds is an international plot headed by the greatest criminal mastermind in the world. For the sake of the beautiful Phyllis, he faces murderous schemers, acid baths and even wild animals in his attempts to save her father's and his own life. In this, his first appearance, Bulldog Drummond is charming, undaunted and endlessly resourceful: the template of the modern action hero.

Audible Editor Reviews

This first of a series of classic pulp thrillers about a British officer, post WWI, seeking adventure and battling master criminals, is melodramatic fun for those with a taste for the period. Roy McMillan's narration makes the novel into a smoothly entertaining "movie of the mind." He has a pleasantly deep, engaging voice, which he varies easily for different characters, only occasionally wandering into exaggeration or caricature. His accents are mostly good, especially the sometimes-difficult American, and his pacing keeps the story flowing smoothly. His real skill is that one doesn't even notice his talent and professionalism but simply absorbs the story with pleasure.
