Rufus Wright's reading of the sequel, Rupert of Hentzau, centres on the villain of the earlier piece. Interestingly darker than Zenda, it draws a more complex picture of Rudolf and Rupert and raises ambiguous moral issues. Great escapist listening. --Christina Hardyment, The Times
Hope's first novel, The Prisoner of Zenda, set in his fictitious kingdom of Ruritania, was a Victorian bestseller. This equally exciting sequel presses all the topical royal romance buttons. Give it to Granny. --Sue Arnold, The Guardian
Anthony Hope (in full Sir Anthony Hope Hawkins) was born in London and educated at Marlborough and at Balliol College, Oxford. He became a lawyer, and dabbled in Liberal politics, but the immediate success of The Prisoner of Zenda, his fourth work, turned him entirely to writing. This work and its sequel, Rupert of Hentzau, both describe the perilous adventures of the Englishman Rudolph Rassendyll in the mythical kingdom of Ruritania. Anthony Hope successfully published many other novels and plays. He was knighted in 1918 and died in 1933.
