H. G. Wells says of this highly exciting yarn: “By far the best piece of storytelling Gask has done. It kept me up to half past one last night.”
Sunday Mercury: “Mr. Gask knows all there is to know of how to write a good mystery story, which also means how to keep the reader’s nose buried in the book until the last page.”
This exciting spy story will keep the reader breathless from cover to cover.
All of the Gilbert Larose books by Arthur Gask are excellent, fast-paced detective thrillers. Larose definitely has his faults, and often he finds himself imprisoned by enemies when no one knows where he is or will miss him for several days. You’d think he’d learn, wouldn’t you? Still, he manages to get the bad guys and clear all away for the romance that is pending. These are good Golden Age detective stories, and while they aren’t deep or involved, they are fun reads for those of us who like a nice old mystery of this sort.
