-----------------------------------

An adventure novel originally serialised in 1908, written under the pseudonym Basil Windham. It was compiled from a serial which appeared in Chums: An Illustrated Paper for Boys. Like much of Wodehouse's writing of the period, the story is set in a public boys' school. But it departs from that usual form as described by Wodehouse in a letter written to a friend: "I've been commissioned by Chums to do a 70,000-word serial by July. They want it not so public-schooly as my usual stuff and with a rather lurid plot." It was his only such novel of mystery, high adventure, and danger, that was remotely worthy of the term "blood and thunder", while remaining unmistakeably 'Wodehouse-ian', with its trademark sticky situations, quirky characters, humour and stylish prose.
