The story of a rich, young New Yorker whose great wealth had taken from him all incentive to action. For want of a definite object in life he is toying with the thought of suicide, when he surprises a youthful burglar in the act of entering his room. Then, posing as a poor man “My Geoffrey” he takes up lodgings with the house-breaker in the old ” Hell’s Kitchen” of the New York slums. Thugs gangsters, pugilists of unsavory reputation, take the place of the vicious characters of old-time Kentish lanes where there is battle, sudden deadly encounters, revenge and heartbreak, and love fair and foul before “the definite object” is attained.
Typical Jeffery Farnol…. great plot, swift moving action, and marvelous characters.
