William Le Queux Mystery Collection

From Wikipedia – “William Tufnell Le Queux (pronunciation: it is unclear how, in fact, Le Queux expressed his name to British auditors, but a French speaker would pronounce this surname approximately as “luh KUH”; dates: 2 July 1864 – 13 October 1927) was an Anglo-French journalist and writer. He was also a diplomat (honorary consul for San Marino), a traveller (in Europe, the Balkans and North Africa), a flying buff who officiated at the first British air meeting at Doncaster in 1909, and a wireless pioneer who broadcast music from his own station long before radio was generally available; his claims regarding his own abilities and exploits, however, were usually exaggerated. His best-known works are the anti-German invasion fantasies The Great War in England in 1897 (1894) and The Invasion of 1910 (1906), the latter of which was a phenomenal bestseller.”

I love a good mystery and espionage story, and while some of the writing style is dated, Le Queux still spins a good yarn.  That’s why I have chosen to record so many of his books.  He wrote 150 novels (doubtful I’ll get to all of them, even I need a break sometime).  I hope you enjoy listening to them as much as I enjoy recording them.
