An English nobleman and his resourceful niece work together to uncover an international plot that hinges on the actions of a reserved but unpredictable prince. This multilayered story is full of political intrigue, informed by the leaders of its day. Nigel Kingley has grown concerned about the state of England's public affairs. The country's government is focused on singular interests that have left them vulnerable to attack. He and his partners discover a budding alliance among three major powers. There is Russia represented by Nadia Karetsky, Germany led by Oscar Immelan, and Prince Shan, ruler of China. The prince's participation could lead to the failure or success of a critical agreement. The Great Prince Shan is a high stakes tale with millions of lives hanging in the balance. It emphasizes how the decisions of a few can affect millions of lives. E. Phillips Oppenheim masterfully explores a world built on fear and the threat of war. With an eye-catching new cover, and professionally typeset manuscript, this edition of The Great Prince Shan is both modern and readable.

Author Biography

E. Phillips Oppenheim (1866-1946) was a bestselling English novelist. Born in London, he attended London Grammar School until financial hardship forced his family to withdraw him in 1883. For the next two decades, he worked for his father's business as a leather merchant, but pursued a career as a writer on the side. With help from his father, he published his first novel, Expiation, in 1887, launching a career that would see him write well over one hundred works of fiction. In 1892, Oppenheim married Elise Clara Hopkins, with whom he raised a daughter. During the Great War, Oppenheim wrote propagandist fiction while working for the Ministry of Information. As he grew older, he began dictating his novels to a secretary, at one point managing to compose seven books in a single year. With the success of such novels as The Great Impersonation (1920), Oppenheim was able to purchase a villa in France, a house on the island of Guernsey, and a yacht. Unable to stay in Guernsey during the Second World War, he managed to return before his death in 1946 at the age of 79.
