The life of William Tufnell Le Queux was to say the least interesting. His prowess as a novelist has been disparaged and his personal accomplishments dismissed but David Chapman has dug deeper
into the man’s past and exposed an individual who did indeed walk with kings.
Using various biographies and public records, and having access to many letters written by and to Le Queux, he has drawn a portrait of a man who was a prolific writer of novels, short stories and articles,
from crime fiction to political intrigue, fiction and non-fiction.
His private life was no less varied and he travelled extensively in Europe, often participating in diplomatic missions and ‘active service’ of other kinds. While not successful maritally he was obviously
dapper and attractive and socialised at all levels of society, in Britain and abroad.
This book seeks to show that this comparatively little-known writer
is worthy of much greater note.
