From the cover: “A latter-day female Candide, Maud Noakes embarks on a one-woman crusade to restore Africa to the Africans and win it back from the missionaries. Her famous Noakes report, lodged, after much hazard, with the Colonial Office, precipitates an international and interdenominational spy chase across Holland, Germany, Soviet Russia, Persia and the Middle East. Documents are stolen and recovered in the nick of time; disguises are changed just as they are about to be unmasked; and absurdity is compounded with impudence and high-spirited venom.”
