MEGRUE, ROI COOPER. - Undercover .. novelised by Wyndham Martyn.

Boston, Little Brown 1914. Octavo publisher's red cloth blocked in white (a couple of small spots); illustrated by William Kirkpatrick. A very good copy. ¶ A high society thriller set in Paris and Long Island. Megrue's play was considered revolutionary for 1914 for introducing the final twist: the true identity of the hero was kept secret until the very end of the play. Megrue wrote, in a 1914 article, that during tryouts he gave in one night to the advice of convention and let the audience into the secret in the proper place - the second act - after which 'at the end of the third act the entire lot got up in a bunch and walked out'. The novel was synchronised with the play - published in August, at the end it advertises the New York and Chicago openings for the end of August.
