    Don't judge this book by its cover! I had to study it at school and ended up really loving it. It's devious - the plot is out of sequence so you have to act like a bit of a secret agent yourself to piece it all together. Its story of innocence corrupted, vengeance and terrorist bombs makes it especially relevant today, even though it was written over 100 years ago. Classic.
