Containing the Further Adventures of “Mysterious Mr. Sabin"
The efforts of Mr. Sabin, one of Mr. Oppenheim’s most fascinating characters, to free his wife from an entanglement with the Order of the Yellow Crayon, give the author one of his most complicated and absorbing plots. A number of the characters of “Mysterious Mr. Sabin” figure in this delightful work.
A brilliant and engrossing story of love and adventure and Russian political intrigue. A revolution, the recall of an exiled king, the defence of his dominion against Turkish aggression, furnish a series of exciting pictures and dramatic situations.
In none of Mr. Oppenheim’s fascinating and absorbing books has he better illustrated his remarkable faculty for holding the reader’s interest to the end than in “The Betrayal.” The efforts of the French Secret Service to obtain important papers relating to the Coast Defence of England are the motif of its remarkable plot.
Mr. Oppenheim has never written a better story than “A Millionaire of Yesterday.” He grips the reader’s attention at the start by his vivid picture of the two men in the West African bush making a grim fight for life and fortune, and he holds it to the finish. The volume is thrilling throughout, while the style is excellent.
This brilliant, nervous, and intensely dramatic tale of love, intrigue, and revolution in a South American State is so human and life-like that the reader is bewildered by the writer’s evident daring, and his equal fidelity to things as they are.
As fascinating a story of modern life as a novelist has yet conceived and one that arrests the mind by its fine strenuousness of purpose.
This amazing story of the strange revenge of Sir Wingrave Seton, who suffered imprisonment for a crime he did not commit rather than defend himself at a woman’s expense, “will make the most languid alive with expectant interest,” says the Chicago Record-Herald.
