The Princess and the Jewel Doctor

by Robert Smythe Hichens

A story of slightly horrific bent about a Russian princess who fears she may go blind. During a stay in Tunis, she hears of a man who can cure ailments with jewels. Her desperation leads to thievery and mutilation. A fine story told like a fairy tale.

The Spinster

by Robert Smythe Hichens

A very short short story about marital infidelity and the "crazy cat lady" who played a huge role one night when murder was almost done. The only two characters who seemed vividly drawn were the lord's wife and the cat lady spinster.

If you're a fan of the 1970s/80s "bodice rippers" like I am, then this book is mandatory reading. If you've seen the Valentino movie, then you might be interested to know that it was VERY toned down from the novel, which has many allusions to rape and far more violence than I expected. In quite a few scenes, it's rather bloody! The 1921 movie is almost like a drawing room tea party in comparison to this novel, which was sweet and savage long before Rosemary Rogers.
