About the Book

E. Phillips Oppenheim, a British author, published the mystery-thriller The Evil Shepherd in 1922. The plot begins with a businessman found with a knife in his heart, and Oliver Hilditch, a cold-eyed man with a tenuous alibi, is the apparent suspect. The narrative will then take you to a scene where Hilditch appears to be headed for the hangman's post, but he is saved by outstanding defense lawyer Francis Ledsam, who employs all of his knowledge of the law to set his client free. Ledsam should be proud of his defense, but his happiness is short-lived when Hilditch's wife tells him that her husband is responsible for atrocities much more horrifying than murder. Ledsam's confidence in his job is shattered, and he swears never to advocate for a criminal once more. He finds himself caught between his love for a beautiful woman and a strong desire to do the right thing—no matter the cost—when his newly discovered values clash with the harsh reality of real-world justice. In the end, What will he do? Will he choose his love of his desire? Readers should read this story to know the end!

About Author

E. Phillips Oppenheim

E. Phillips Oppenheim was born on October 22, 1866, in Tohhenham, London, England, to Henrietta Susannah Temperley Budd and Edward John Oppenheim, a leather retailer. After leaving school at age 17, he helped his father in his leather business and used to write in his extra time. His first novel, Expiration (1886), and subsequent thrillers piqued the interest of a wealthy New York businessman who eventually bought out the leather business and made Oppenheim a high-paid director.He is more focused on dedicating most of his time to writing. The novels, volumes of short stories, and plays that followed, numbering more than 150, were about humans with modern heroes, fearless spies, and stylish noblemen. The Long Arm of Mannister (1910), The Moving Finger (1911), and The Great Impersonation (1920) are three of his most famous essays.
