Macaulay, Rose: Mystery at Geneva, v1, 12 December 2009.

Rose Macaulay (1881-1958)
Mystery at Geneva (1922)
‘An Improbable Tale of Singular Happenings’

This is a mystery, set at the League of Nations in Geneva, at some point in the 1920s. Delegates vanish unexpectedly. What has become of the abducted diplomats? Henry, a journalist for the ‘British Bolshevist’ is determined to find out.
There’s quite an unexpected twist towards the end.

The source was Project Gutenberg, which posted this book earlier today.
(If anyone knows of a source for the author’s masterpiece, “The Towers of Trebizond” do PM me. I would very much like to convert it.)

"She is a woman of dreams. Mad dreams, dreams of crazy, impossible things. And they aren't all of conversion to the Church, oh no. Nor all of the liberation of women, oh no. Her eyes are on far mountains, always some far peak where she will go. She looks so firm and practical, that nice face, so fair and plump and shrewd, but look in her eyes, you will sometimes catch a strange gleam."
From the Towers of Trebizond

One of my all time favorites!

PS: And , no, I won't say: "Take my camel, dear!"
