Introduced by Gavin L. O'Keefe

Derek Lavering, home from China, finds his father, Lord Tellmarch, ill in bed and worried by the theft of the plans of a secret aeroplane with which the government is experimenting. Various reasons make it inadvisable to call in the police, and Derek promises to help in the investigations. In this he is helped by his Chinese companion, Chang, and a more ingenious detective it were impossible to find. This is a mystery story with a new flavour—and with all the old thrills. A very unusual spy story, with a London background.  

Gavin O'Keefe's introduction tells the story behind the original publication and it's quite a tale.
