Blurb:

ROGER BROOK on a secret mission to Catherine the Great’s Russia.

In 1788 Roger travelled to the Russia of that bold, beautiful, cultured, licentious woman, Catherine II – justly surnamed ‘the Great’ – for Britain’s youngest Prime Minister, Billy Pitt. How he buried the Sword of Sweden in the dark straw of a dungeon and, overnight, became a Chevalier of the order of Vladimir, makes superbly enthralling reading.

Blurb:
Duke de Richleau conspires to put a King on the Throne.
This is the story of the youth of Dennis Wheatley’s famous character, Duke de Richleau. He then bore his father’s second title, Count de Quesnoy. The story is set against the glamorous background of Paris in the nineties, when the ladies of the great world had little to think about except their love affairs — and the Count was no mean gallant. The betrayal of the conspiracy brought death to some and left the Count in desperate straits. But instead of des­pairing he declared a vendetta against the Republican Government. How he fought it while being hunted on a charge of murder makes most exciting reading.
