Editorial Reviews

London Times
Mr. Boothby never allows the interest of their doings to drop from first page to last; and he tells his tale in a pleasant, brisk fashion that carries the reader along, and is as convincing a vehicle as could be chosen for the relation of strange adventures such as befell the hero and his friends.
Manchest Courier
It is impossible to give any idea of the verve with which the story is told. The most original novel of the year!"--The Manchester Courier.
