HOPE, A.: Prisoner of Zenda (The) (Unabridged)

The Prisoner of Zenda is a classic mistaken-identity thriller. Rudolph Rassendyll, a dashing English gentleman travelling in Ruritania, bears an uncanny resemblance to its future monarch. This likeness draws him into a world of treachery, when Rassendyll is called upon to save the future King who has been imprisoned by his scheming brother ‘Black’ Michael.

Packed with romance and swashbuckling action, the tale is considered by some to be the best adventure story ever written.
