1927. A best-selling author of novels, short stories, magazine articles, translations, and plays, Oppenheim (who also wrote under the name of Anthony Partridge) 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. The book begins: Pietro waved his hand with a grand gesture. He leaned against the rampart and pointed downwards. Many years spent in his profession as semi-mendicant guide had imbued him with a sense of possession in the treasures which he displayed.
