Reviews by bhold


by Maurice LeBlanc

There is a lot packed into this crime / mystery novel. Plots, counter-plots, suspense, treachery, surprise twists, and even a little humor. I enjoyed it very much. Highly recommended.

The Seven Secrets

by William le Queux

As a fan of the genre, this book was an extremely disappointing read for me. It sets a new low-water mark for how bad a book can be. Slow, tedious, and ridiculous.

The End of Her Honeymoon

by Marie Belloc Lowndes

About midway through the book, I was fully wrapped up in the plot - a very intriguing "missing person" mystery. From there things go downhill and ultimately collapse into a nonsensical ending. If I could rate this book in two halves, I would give 5 stars and 1 star.

The Deaves Affair

by Hulbert Footner

A young man intervenes to protect an eccentric elderly gentleman during a public disruption. He soon finds himself employed by the old man's family as both bodyguard and investigator in a blackmail case. A decent mystery yarn intertwined with an extremely heavy romantic interest.
