Mystery of Tunnel 51 (Wallace of the Secret Service) - Alexander Wilson

it's amazing to see all these old Spy novels coming back into print! this one is from 1928, and despite a title that sounds more like a Hardy Boys book, I'm pumped. it launched a series, and it looks like I have fairly easy access (bookstore, only slightly out of the way) to another five of these. that's one reason this has jumped the line, even though I was initially going to go to The Suicide Club. the last Spy novel I read was pretty ancient too, so by the time I finish Tunnel 51, I'm really gonna want something recently published as my next Espionage choice (even if it's set in an earlier era). but all that aside, now that this is cued up, let's see what's on offer straight from the 1920s!
