Click for availability and more information The List of Adrian Messenger, by Philip MacDonald

Adrian Messenger asks a friend in British Intelligence to locate 11 men, mentioning something about an unbelievable conspiracy. Adrian himself is on his way to California, but a bomb explodes on the plane. Adrian and two others survive, but Adrian dies before rescue, though he does mutter words repeatedly that may be a message. British Intelligence finds that all 11 men on Adrian's list are dead, killed in "accidents". The friend asks Anthony Gethryn to investigate. Eventually a plan to eliminate all members of the Brougham family so a distant American relative can become Marquis of Gleneyre is discovered, just in time to save the final person who stands in his way. Exciting mystery, deftly plotted.
