    "The Swoop!" tells of the simultaneous invasion of England by several armies - "England was not merely beneath the heel of the invader. It was beneath the heels of nine invaders. There was barely standing-room." The invaders are the Russians under Grand Duke Vodkakoff, the Germans under Prince Otto of Saxe-Pfennig - the reigning British monarch of the day was Edward VII of the House of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha - the Swiss Navy, the Monegasques, a band of Moroccan brigands under Raisuli, the Young Turks, the Mad Mullah from Somalialand, the Chinese under Prince Ping Pong Pang, and the Bollygollans in war canoes.

    From the beginning, MacLane's writing was characterized by a direct, fiery, highly individualistic style. At the age of 19 in 1901, MacLane wrote her first book, titled by its author "I Await the Devil's Coming" but changed by its publishers to "The Story of Mary MacLane". It sold 100,000 copies in the first month and was powerfully influential on young women. Some critics have suggested that even by today's standards, MacLane's writing is raw, honest, unflinching, self-aware, sensual, and extreme.

    The story centers on a London lawyer named Gabriel John Utterson, who investigates strange occurrences between his old friend, Dr. Henry Jekyll and the evil Edward Hyde. The work is commonly associated with the rare mental condition often called "split personality" where, within the same body, there exists more than one distinct personality. The work is frequently interpreted as an examination of the duality of human nature, usually expressed as an inner struggle between good and evil.
