Rose Macaulay and Mystery at Geneva - Novels of 1922 MP3

Secrets and politics and multiple kidnappings at the League of Nations, and some pointed messages about early feminism. Rose Macaulay's Mystery at Geneva is a fine satirical novel in the mystery mode. (NB this version replaces the inadvertently gigantic version released earlier.) Source: reallylikethisbook.com

    Helene Hanff and 84 Charing Cross Road MP3

    Imagine you're a poor and struggling scriptwriter working in an unheated New York brownstone in the 1940s.

    Angela Thirkell and Northbridge Rectory - Five English Country Villages MP3

    Peter O'Donnell and Modesty Blaise MP3

    She's a pre-feminist action hero, a serious contender for the hardest secret agent around, and she's a cartoon strip turned into a series of novels. Modesty Blaise predates Lara Croft and Emma Peel, and could beat them hollow: she could probably sort out Bond as well.
