About Book

Book Description
1911. A best-selling author of novels, short stories, magazine articles, translations, and plays, Oppenheim published over 150 books. He is considered one of the originators of the thriller genre, his novels also range from spy thrillers to romance, but all have an undertone of intrigue. He also wrote under the name of Anthony Partridge. The Tempting of Tavernake begins: They stood upon the roof of a London boardinghouse in the neighborhood of Russell Square-one of those grim shelters, the refuge of Transatlantic curiosity and British penury. The girl-she represented the former race-was leaning against the frail palisading, with gloomy expression and eyes set as though in fixed contemplation of the uninspiring panorama. The young man, unmistakably, uncompromisingly English-stood with his back to the chimney a few feet away, watching his companion. The silence between them was as yet unbroken, had lasted, indeed, since she had stolen away from the shabby drawing-room below, where a florid lady with a raucous voice had been shouting a music-hall ditty.
