Short Fiction Oppenheim, E Phillips: Michael's Evil Deeds (1923), v1

Originally published as a series of connected short stories, in Red Book Magazine in 1921, this is a typical episodic novel which involves a prolonged duel between Michael Sayers, crook, and Norman Greyes, policeman. The narrative makes use of multiple narrators: Sayers, Greyes or another as each story requires. (The fact that there are only a small number of chapters tells an alert reader that these are essentially short stories, as a typical Oppenheim novel runs to 25-35 chapters.) 1. The Und...

Some very sharp City of London operators think that rich Lord Stranleigh, a Bertie Woosterish West End fashion plate, is an easy mark to make some money. There is a potential gold mine in Africa, for example; a dilapidated but workable cargo steamer The Rajah, to haul the gold ore back to England. What more is needed? An entertaining yarn of dealing, double dealing and even triple dealing, and young Lord Stranleigh is by no means as big a mug as he looks. ...
