His Unknown Wife

by Louis Tracy

Requires the suspension of a degree of disbelief but a good adventure with some possibly accurate information on natural history, geography and primitive Indians. All in all, a worthwhile read.

The Mystery of Murray Davenport

by Robert Neilson Stephens

An unlikely premise for the era, characters for whom it is hard to feel empathy, slow moving and excessively wordy. For me, at least, it held few pleasures.

The Great Shadow and Other Napoleonic Tales

by Arthur Conan Doyle

It's a pleasant surprise to learn that Doyle wrote much more than Holmes and Prof Challenger. Quite well worth reading.

The Green Flag

by Arthur Conan Doyle

More good short stories from Doyle. Not earthshaking but entertaining.
