Book Description: Down in the fiery belly of the luxury liner RMS Titanic, a world away from the first-class dining rooms and sedate tours of the deck, toiled the ‘black gang’. Their work was gruelling and hot, and here de Kerbrech introduces the reader to the dimly lit world and workplace of Titanic’s stokers. Beginning with a journey around some of the major elements of machinery that one might encounter in the giant ship’s engine and boiler rooms, those with a technical mind would be sated, while the accessible style would aid the lay reader in this more specialist title. The human side of working for the most famous liner is also involved in an exploration of stokers’ duties, environment and conditions: what it was like to be one of the ‘black gang’.

Book Description: A fearsome cadre of ex-soldiers joins Bulldog Drummond on his second explosive adventure Eight evil men assemble in an English country house. Thieves, white slavers, drug dealers, and communists, they share one common goal: the destruction of everything that England holds dear. Police surround the manor in preparation for a raid. Suddenly, a gang of men in black masks appears and knocks the officers unconscious. Whips in hand, the Black Gang enters the house—and the crooks inside beg for the soft touch of the police. A conspiracy against the English crown is afoot, the plotters operating just within the boundaries of the law—making it impossible for Scotland Yard to intervene. Thankfully, the Black Gang has no such restraints. Led by the fearless veteran Bulldog Drummond, they will stop at nothing to save England, no matter how many lashings they must deliver along the way. This ebook has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices.

Book Description: Sapper's original Bulldog Drummond-5 volumes, 10 novels and 5 great short stories These are the original adventures of Sapper's Bulldog Drummond collected together in a special Leonaur five volume collection-each special book containing two full length Bulldog Drummond novels plus one short story featuring the eponymous hero. Their author, Sapper-H. C. McNeile-was a British Army officer in the Royal Engineers during the Great War and took the popular name of his corps as his unforgettable nom-de-plume.

To remedy this intolerable state of affairs he and his trusted band of henchmen, 'The Black Gang, ' embark on a career of detection and high adventure (occasionally crossing the line of the law) satisfyingly filled with villainous 'foreign' foes, deadly 'bad-but-beautiful' women and, of course, a bevy of beautiful 'good' women to be rescued from death and fates worse than! Drummond is a man's-man of the likes of Richard Hannay and Doc Savage, a hero that could be set against the likes of a Fu Manchu and a proto James Bond who is guaranteed to throw himself into colourful 'between the wars' two fisted action at every opportunity-to the delight of readers who enjoy adventure from a more innocent age. In the first volume, is the first novel named for the hero, Bulldog Drummond and its sequel The Black Gang.

Book Description: Armchair Fiction presents Mammoth Mystery Double Classics--featuring illustrated editions of two all-time mystery-crime standards, with 470 pages or more of whodunit thrills. "The Black Gang" is our first grisly tale of murder and mayhem, by H. C. "Sapper" McNeile. Bulldog Drummond Returns! The First World War is over, and even though the hostilities on the battlefield have ended, it seems that England is still being threatened by a subtly more sinister form of aggression. These nefarious goings-on are brought to light by Captain Hugh "Bulldog" Drummond, who has discovered that his country's democracy is being undermined by a web of bribery and blackmail schemes perpetrated by a criminal mastermind from overseas. So before long Drummond forms his "Black Gang," whose sole purpose is to track down the evildoers and bring them to justice. Unfortunately all hell soon breaks loose for Hugh Drummond when he accepts a seemingly innocent invitation to tea with a clergyman and his daughter. "The Black Gang" is a real page-turner. It was the second of ten knock-down-and-drag-out Bulldog Drummond novels by H. C. "Sapper" McNeile. This double novel's second tale features another great fictional detective in Louis Joseph Vance's "Alias the Lone Wolf." Michael Laynard, alias the Lone Wolf, has spent the majority of his life as a daring thief-turned-secret agent. As he grows older, though, he hopes to leave that life--and the danger--behind. But old enemies never forget--or forgive. Cutting ties with the British Secret Service, he sets out to wander the backroads of France. Unfortunately for the Lone Wolf, fate always has a way of keeping him on his toes, as even in the beautiful French countryside danger lurks around every corner. After involving himself with a beautiful woman, Michael Laynard soon finds himself falling headfirst back into the life he was trying to leave behind, coming eyeball to eyeball with a vast criminal organization and the temptation of feminine wiles. Packed with espionage, crime, and mystery, "Alias the Lone Wolf" will glue you to your favorite reading chair.
