Book 15 – The Power House by John Buchan

A quick and easy read this one, written just before the First World War, when the popular imagination was seized with fascination and fear of Anarchists (with a capital A), whose sinister networks infiltrated and tried to control Civilised Society (capital C and S). Buchan always spins a good yarn and I would recommend this as an excellent introduction to his style, so long as you are able to leave some of your 2013 sensibilities at the door.
