Overview

THE AMAZING JUDGMENT

The world-weary Lord Hildyard, Marquis of Esholt, is on a yachting tour with a group of friends, including his kept lover, Pauline Owston. When Hildyard spies an apparently uninhabited island, he slips off the ship in search of adventure. What he finds is the exotic woman-child, Bertha, and her guardian, Stanley Owston, estranged husband of Pauline. Before the yachting party returns, Hildyard discovers himself in love with Bertha, and vows to return for her. But when the Owstons are dramatically reunited, Stanley confesses to his wife that Bertha is the daughter whom she has not seen in twelve years. Will Hildyard ever find the love he seeks, or is his love for Bertha now doomed beyond hope?

MR. LAXWORTHY'S ADVENTURES

For Mr. John T. Laxworthy, detection is a serious game, and all of Europe is his playground. In a series of 12 adventures, Laxworthy travels with a well-padded wallet and two sporting companions, following only his instincts and the scent of money to be made. Along the way, he nabs an international burglar, exposes a cross-dressing murderer, foils a plot to steal battleship plans, and even helps a respected criminal opponent recover 40,000 pounds owed him by an unscrupulous London banker. Laxworthy is an amateur sleuth and an adventurer: urbane, clever, and oh-so-British. You'll cheer him on as he always gets his man - and, in the end, even his woman.
