This was better than I expected, not that I thought it would be bad. I guessed the ending before I got there, but I wasn't disappointed.

Definitely not a "PC" book (women and blacks don't fare well) and definitely a product of the era in which it was written. Germany is trying to take over Europe and sends a devout believer with a checkered past to pose as an English country gentleman. The man he's impersonating also has a checkered past and an insane wife, so there's a bit of mystery mixed in.

All in all, an entertaining read.
