get full control, and how soon. Meanwhile, I'm my own boss more or less--report direct to the Administrator, and he's one of those men who allows you lots of scope."

That was the sort of occasional glimpse he gave of himself, and then switched off into straight statements about the Zionist problem. All his statements were unqualified, and given with the air of knowing all about it right from the beginning.

"There's nothing here that really matters outside the Zionist- Arab problem. But that's a big one. People don't realize it-- even on the spot--but it's a world movement with ramifications everywhere. All the other politics of the Near East hinge on it, even when it doesn't appear so on the surface. You see, the Jews have international affiliations through banks and commerce. They have blood-relations everywhere. A ripple here may mean there's a wave in Russia, or London, or New York. I've known at least one Arab blood-feud over here that began with a quarrel between a Jew and a Christian in Ch


Average Rating of 4.3 from 3 reviews: *****

This is a surprisingly modern thriller with espionage, geopolitics and good old-fashioned fisticuffs. It's compulsively readable. A rip-roaring story told in the chaos after World War 1, about British and regional interests in the Middle East. The anti-Semitism disappointed me quite a bit but if nothing else is true to the time and place of the story.

I read all five books in this series and truly enjoyed them. All too often we find that these out-of-copyright ebooks are difficult to read and generally inaccessible. This book and its sequels are different. They are truly excellent stories that hold up vs. today's thrillers.

This book was quite a good read. An enjoyable adventure story and is still quite relevant to todays situation in the Middle East.


When I started this I had to assure myself I was reading the right book--it just sounded too modern [except for the sex and language; didn't see the f-word once, and only a few references to harems and women, all necessary to the story]. Jimgrim sounds a little too wonderful [though apparently Mundy based him on someone he knew], but the story is good. If you like adventure set in the Middle East and the days of the British Empire, you can't do much better than this. This is the first I've read of Mundy's, and I immediately downloaded all of the other Jimgrim books; when I started the second of the series [Winds of the World] I started downloading some others that seemed to be related to that, in addition to the Jimgrim books. I'll probably end up reading all of his books before I finish!
