Mystery at Geneva

by Rose Macaulay

Looking far into the future, we are given a picture of some assembly, a kind of League of Nations; a meeting controlled almost entirely by intrigue and plotting. Henry Beechtree, a reporter for a liberal newspaper, becomes interested in the mysterious disappearance of some of the most prominent diplomats. His solution of the matter proves to be quite false, but it serves to throw the reader off the correct thread. The real secret is a surprise for those who think that they have solved the mystery early in the story. Further, the author has suggested a problem that is very much in the minds of people at the present time--for the average person is wondering how these leagues can be kept any more free from secret diplomacy than the old parleys.

Author of the Day

Alexander McNabb
When Alexander McNabb stopped smoking, he had to find something constructive to do with his hands - so he started writing. His debut novel Olives - A Violent Romance, sparked a lot of controversy in the Middle East because of his use of common family names and because it contained themes such as drinking alcohol, sex before marriage etc. So he followed it with Beirut, in which there’s booze aplenty, sex, gambling, murder, violence and general mayhem. As our Author of the Day, McNabb chats about his love for the Middle East, why his books always deal with politics, democratic values and religion and reveals what music he listens to while writing.
