13 short novels spanning more than 500 pages. Most are OLD. Like pre-Cold War old, so if that is the type of espionage reading that keeps you awake on the beach then this is not the collection for you. Age is the only common factor however. The stories span about 100 years and take us to Japan, East Germany, Russia, France, England and America and include such icons as Sherlock Holmes and James Bond.
