In the waning days of World War I, four men gather in a Swiss hotel. Two are German, one is American—and the last is a citizen of the world and a master of disguise. To enter this exclusive club, there are only two requirements: a desire to see England destroyed and the means to make it happen.
In London, Captain Hugh “Bulldog” Drummond, formerly of His Majesty’s Royal Loamshire Regiment, grapples with the tedium of civilian life. Eager for action, he places an ad offering himself up for adventure licit or illicit—anything so long as it is exciting. He is soon hired by Phyllis Benton, whose father has come under the sway of the sinister organization plotting to bring down the British government and replace it with a dictatorship. Bulldog will risk life and limb to save not only his beloved England, but the charming Miss Phyllis, as well.
The first installment in H. C. McNeile’s postwar adventure novels revolutionized the thriller genre and introduced one of popular fiction’s most enduring heroes.
