“For a certain crispness of dialogue, and deft arrangement of the events of a good plot, Mr. Carlton Dawe has very few rivals.”—The Yorkshire Post.
By L. G. MOBERLY
This story deals with a foreign woman, who poses as a great philanthropist, but who, under cover of her social activities, is involved in very other matters. What these are must be left to Miss Moberly to tell, and she tells them in a story of great power, vividness and charm.
Some of Miss Moberly’s previous successes:
The Voice Fingers of Fate Stepping Stones Hope, My Wife Vere Diana A Tangled Web A Way of Escape Threads of Life The Eternal Dustbin Renewal A Change and a Chance The Master Key
In the long list of successful novelists Miss Moberly takes a high place. Her novels are not merely thrillers, but a readable love story is invariably woven into the mystery.
By CHARMAN EDWARDS
A beautiful woman, destined to be England’s most famous actress, born amid the glamour yet hardship of that picturesque and now almost obsolete institution of rural England, the travelling theatre. Against this coloured background and that of the West-end stage is the story of the men who craved her for her beauty alone. Here is no impossible heroine who survives her many ordeals unscathed—Sheila Fitzpatrick is but human after all—but the reader’s sympathy will be with her to the end.

Mr. Edwards writes in a manner that holds one to his story.
Characterisation comes easy to him. He has a facility for sustained
suspense and he constructs with admirable economy.
