Roger Sloane is a young American living on the Cote d'Azur during the late 1920's. He meets an old classmate who is wandering Europe after inheriting a title in England. Together the two friends, along with a disparate group of upper class diletantes combat the sinister forces of a gang of American bootleggers who have abandoned New York and set up a sophisticated crime syndicate in the South of France. Robbery, murder, secret hideouts, fast cars, and beautiful women all figure in this tale of roaring 20's. Roger meets a wild and beautiful child of the hills, Jeannine, who reappears as the protege of his Aunt, and the belle of the casino. [Suggest a different description.]

Author Bio for Oppenheim, E. Phillips

Author Image

E. Phillips Oppenheim, in full Edward Phillips Oppenheim (born Oct. 22, 1866, London, Eng.—died Feb. 3, 1946, St. Peter Port, Guernsey, Channel Islands, U.K.), internationally popular British author of novels and short stories dealing with international espionage and intrigue.

After leaving school at age 17 to help in his father's leather business, Oppenheim wrote in his spare time. His first novel, Expiation (1887), and subsequent thrillers caught the fancy of a wealthy New York businessman who bought out the leather business at the turn of the century and made Oppenheim a high-salaried director. He was thus freed to devote the major part of his time to writing. The novels, volumes of short stories, and plays that followed, totaling more than 150, were peopled with sophisticated heroes, adventurous spies, and dashing noblemen. Among his well-known works are The Long Arm of Mannister (1910), The Moving Finger (1911), and The Great Impersonation (1920).--Encyclopaedia Britannica.
