Title: The Tragedy of the Korosko
Author: Arthur Conan Doyle
Page Count: 126
This book is definitely a product of its times and there are a few bits here and there which were borderline racist, but it was also a cracking story of intrigue and adventure. Essentially, we follow a bunch of holidaymakers who’ve travelled to Egypt as they’re hijacked by camel-riding Arabs who plan to sell them into slavery and who give them the choice of converting to Islam or being put to the sword.
Overall, probably not worth reading unless you’re a Conan Doyle fan, but I was pretty happy with it and plan to read everything he wrote. Getting there!
