Overview

Alias the Lone Wolf by Louis Joseph Vance Vance

The super crook in "The Lone Wolf," the object of fiendish vengeance in "The False Faces," and the clever secret service man in "The Red Masquerade" now has his most thrilling adventure as a gentleman adventurer... If there were anybody or thing a girl of her age�Athenais was about twenty-five�shouldn't know, she knew him, her or it; if there were any place she shouldn't go, she either went or had been there; if there were anything she shouldn't do or say or think or countenance, those things she�within limitations�did and said and thought and accepted or passed over as matters of fact and no consequence. And though she observed scrupulously certain self-imposed limitations she never made this obvious, she simply avoided what she chose to consider bad taste with a deftness and tact that would have seemed admirable in a woman of the great world twice her age. And with it all she preserved a sort of champagne effervescence of youthful spirits and an easy-going cameraderie incomprehensible when one took into consideration the disillusioning circumstances of her life, her vocation as a paid government spy, trusted with secrets and worthy of her trust, dedicated to days of adventure always dangerous, generally sordid, and like at any time to prove deadly.

About the Author

Louis Joseph Vance (September 19, 1879�December 16, 1933) was an American novelist, born in Washington, D. C., and educated in the preparatory department of the Brooklyn Polytechnic Institute. He wrote short stories and verse after 1901, then composed many popular novels. His character "Michael Lanyard", also known as "The Lone Wolf", was featured in eight books and 24 films between 1917 and 1949, and also appeared in radio and television series. Vance was separated from his wife (whom he married in 1898 and by whom he had a son the next year) when he was found dead in a burnt armchair inside his New York apartment; a cigarette had ignited some benzene (used for cleaning his clothes or for his broken jaw) that he had on his body and he was intoxicated at the time. He had recently returned from the West Indies, where he gathered material for a new book. The death was ruled accidental.

Has something like this happened to you? If not, it's kind of sad/rude that you said that. Please don't criticize Christians before you look at what non Christians are like. Have you noticed the rape, murders, laws that have been broken? What about all the drunkness and adiction to drugs and cigerettes? Most Christians don't do or say things like that. Have you tried stepping into our shoes? Thought about how we have been tortured and killed because a non Christian didn't like us? Is this what non Christians think about Christians? And no. That is not what we think of non Christians. <p> One question: is the main character a human or a wolf? I am asking this because wolves don't go to school.

Now, l've never done anything drastic, wait, nevermind. I've been doing crazy stuff since l was five. I've tried self-harming, only once or twice. Scuicide, on the other hand, l've tried more time then l can count. <br> <br> Running away, it turned out the same as self harm. I'm not doing this because l'm adopted, like my sister. Bullied, like my brother. I'm dokng this because l HAVE NO SOUL. <br> <br> My father, is emotionally abusive at times. I don't think he means to. But he scares me and my siblings to death. But l don't blame him. I don't blame anybody but myself. <br> <br> I was sitting in class, and this political kid kept asking the teacher why she can't put up decorations. The answer was: not everybody's religious. I felt my heart crack. I hoped he would stop talking, but he was all like: 'but they have to deal with it. They should deal with being excluded. ' <br> <br> Is this what Christians think of nonbelievers? I'm forced to go to your church, and you complain about me? <br> <br> Like l said, you don't know who your dealing with.
