A little dated and rather quaint in language. A reminder of how the British upper class spoke and behaved in the 1920's. Redolent of John Buchan.
A rip roaring boys' tale of derring do, tightly plotted and exciting in its way, even as there was no doubt as to the eventual outcome.
I highly recommend to that tiny market of surviving Boys' Own Paper addicts.
