Book Description

Bulldog Drummond is a British fictional character, created by H. C. McNeile and published under his pen name "Sapper". After an unsuccessful one-off appearance as a policeman in The Strand magazine, the character was reworked by McNeile into a gentleman adventurer for his 1920 novel Bulldog Drummond. McNeile went on to write ten Drummond novels, five short stories, four stage plays, and a screenplay before his death in 1937. Included in this volume are all ten novels and the five short stories from 1937:


BULLDOG DRUMMOND (1920)

THE BLACK GANG (1922)

THE THIRD ROUND (1923)

THE FINAL COUNT (1926)

THE FEMALE OF THE SPECIES (1928)

TEMPLE TOWER (1929)

THE RETURN OF BULLDOG DRUMMOND (1932)

KNOCK-OUT (1933)

BULLDOG DRUMMOND AT BAY (1935)

CHALLENGE (1937)

5.0 out of 5 stars Priceless entertainment. 11 July 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
What can I say about Bulldog Drummond? War hero, man of action, gentleman adventurer, romantic, patriot - and, when necessary, a ruthless killer who could give Jack Reacher a run for his money.

In the first story we are introduced to Bulldog who is bored with life and who seeks to remedy this state of affairs by advertising for adventure (crime considered!). He is soon in love and equally quickly embroiled in combating a dastardly plot to bring down the government by means of a Bolshevik style revolution. Aided by some of his war chums he pits his wits against the arch villain and his cronies, along the way being captured and released, captured again and escaping, dodging bullets, wrestling a gorilla (yes, I did say gorilla), being gassed and so on and so forth.

There is some genuine humour in the book (some intentional and some perhaps not), lots of action, a little romance and a fair degree of violence (murder, torture, acid baths, fights to the death and some reminiscing of death in the trenches of the First World War). This might not be Colin Forbes or Frederick Forsyth nor yet Clive Cussler or Lee Child but it is surely a forerunner of all these authors, an early example of the thriller genre loved by so many today.

I have only read the first novel in this collection but fully intend to read more; even if I don't, I've already had my money's worth. I recommend this collection to anyone who likes reading works from or about this period, to anyone who likes thrillers (to see where this genre has come from if nothing else), or indeed to anyone who likes to read a book that makes them smile (even if it's not supposed to).

5.0 out of 5 stars just as I like it, in books that is 19 Sept. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read these stories 60 odd years ago, to be able to have them all on the Kindle at such a low price is one of the wonders of the modern age. Not often you can say that, old fashioned, jingoistic, class ridden, just as I like it, in books that is. Makes you remember how good you would like to think is was back then, so throw yourself into a chair and get stuck in.

5.0 out of 5 stars bulldog drummond and co at their best. 2 Feb. 2015
By nan
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
takes me back to my childhood. good adventure stories with all the british values of the times. strangely when i was reading them some of the stories with some alterations could be written now. i have been reading this book for over a week now and i read everyday . very good value for money and still not finished although i am at 90%. hope there are some more in the pipeline, i will be first in queue. by the way i read my fire in bed and just alter the colour of light. no problem.

There are at least five outstanding stories in this collection and the charge for the set is tremendous value for money. In particular, I found the 4 stories involving the master criminal Carl Petersen and also Temple Tower superb reads.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bulldog drummond 21 May 2015
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A good read illustrating the life at the time

Whilst it may be found distasteful to some it does give an inkling of how it was for all strata of life.

If you enjoy a good read without wailing about injustice this could be the book for you.
