內容簡介 Gabriel Samara, Peacemaker (1925) is a novel by E. Phillips Oppenheim. Written at the height of his career as a bestselling author of political thrillers and genre fiction, Gabriel Samara, Peacemaker is a story of romance and international intrigue concerned with the geopolitical realities of its day. A monarchist, Oppenheimer often wrote critically about socialists and anarchists in his novels, fomenting antirevolutionary sentiment in his native England and abroad. On a diplomatic trip to New York, legendary politician Gabriel Samara, a leader from a newly progressive republic of Russia, negotiations are underway to develop stronger relations between the United States and his recovering nation. Seeking assistance in the campaign to demilitarize Russia after the expulsion of the Bolsheviks and Czarists, Samara employs a young typist named Catherine Borans, herself of Russian ancestry. Working as his secretary and translator, she inadvertently saves him from an assassination attempt, forming a strong bond with a man notorious for his no-nonsense personality. When a secret from Borans' past comes to light, however, their relationship--and the negotiations--risk coming to nothing at all. With a beautifully designed cover and professionally typeset manuscript, this edition of E. Phillips Oppenheim's Gabriel Samara, Peacemaker is a classic of English political fiction reimagined for modern readers.
