Author: E. Phillips Oppenheim

The year is 1913. The disgraced and formerly penniless aristocrat Sir Everard Dominey returns from German East Africa a reformed and wealthy man determined to take his place in English society. But is he Sir Everard or the German spy, Baron Leopold von Ragastein? Leopold, educated at Eton and Oxford with the Englishman, bears a striking resemblance to Dominey and was often taken as his double at school. After a chance encounter in Africa, one of them has returned. But who? The Great Impersonation is one of the most famous spy novels of all time. This is excellent reading with its fast moving plot and its imagery of the rich life of English aristocrats before the First World War, as well as its bold characters.
