ePub The Great Impersonation ePub

by E. Phillips Oppenheim

EPO was a bon vivant, worldling and womanizer who wrote about 60 thriller-espionagers in the early 20thC. His characters are rich, glamorous — both the good and the bad. Quirky readers like myself have even collected his oft dated but delightfully woozy adventures. (I have about 15). Some are not terrif, yet all have snappy dialogue and atmospheric situs. Cocktail reading, for sure, in a tottery oceanfront house perched on a cliff—.

Dissipated Brit in Africa, Everard Dominey, meets his double, a German baron, Leopold von Ragenstein, who decides to kill Dominey and impersonate him for McGuffin reasons in London. Secret agents sneak around embassies as WW1 begins. A very Pop item, it was filmed 3xs. Sample intermezzo :

"I believe you are in love with your wife," she sighed.
"I believe I am," he muttered.

Und: "Other married people have lived together and hated each other. Why shouldn't we?" she said with a smile.

"We cannot decide anything in a hurry," he murmured.

Waves of Oppenheim passion collide with fear, and, ah yes, those longings, but what about the corpse, the Kaiser and purloined papers? Bonk-bonk fun for the escapist abode near the thundering sea. Plus plenty of booze.
