About this Recording

MCNEILE, H.C. (Sapper): Bulldog Drummond (Unabridged)

Demobilised officer, finding peace incredibly tedious, would welcome diversion. Legitimate if possible; excitement essential.

When Captain Hugh Drummond, DSO, MC placed that advertisement, he was looking for adventure. What he finds is an international plot headed by the greatest criminal mastermind in the world. For the sake of the beautiful Phyllis, he faces murderous schemers, acid baths and even wild animals in his attempts to save her father—and his own life.

In this, his first appearance, Bulldog Drummond is charming, undaunted and endlessly resourceful: the template of the modern action hero.
