Reading Peter Cheyney now, it is not difficult to understand why Cheyney has not stood the test of time and why Fleming thought his work a cut above the Cheyney class. The narrative takes place in England during the Second World War Cheyney's novels have contemporary settings.
In the course of his enquiries, he discovers a gang of American gangsters working in England for the Germans as a fifth column. Labels: ian fleming , james bond books , peter cheyney , raymond chandler.
