Sant of the secret Service was first published in 1918. The author, William Le Queux, (pronounced 'Q'), was one of the first creators of the spy story. A journalist-turned-author, he successfully combined his passionate interest in national security and new technological developments with his detailed knowledge of travel and high society in Europe, in these and other collections of short stories of intrigue and espionage. In this book, our hero is Gerry Sant "cheerful, optimistic and modest"; he often telephones for the assistance of Mme Gabrielle Soyez, female agent of the British Secret Service, to carry out surveillance and sometimes to infiltrate the enemy in disguise. "Madame, seeing a good chance of a desperate adventure, grinned with satisfaction." Here is the account of their adventures up and down Europe.
