The Great Impersonation
E. Phillips Oppenheim was one of the greatest writers of spy fiction, known in his time as the Prince of Storytellers. To launch their Spy Classics series, the British Library is proud to introduce Oppenheim and his classic work to a new reading public.The most celebrated of Oppenheim's books, The Great Impersonation opens in East Africa in 1913, as the disgraced English aristocrat Everard Dominey stumbles out of the bush only to come face to face with his doublethe German Baron von Ragastein. When Dominey returns to London months later and resumes his glittering social life, suspicions rise: Is this really Dominey, or a German agent infiltrating high society on the eve of war?
