The Riddle of the Night

by Thomas W. Hanshew

Disappointing mystery novel. Starts out OK but by the end it becomes a bloated, convoluted, and repetitious mess. This book could have been a decent short story with some heavy pruning and editing.

Scaramouche

by Rafael Sabatini

A young lawyer's uncompromising adherence to his political beliefs during the French Revolution results in some unexpected transformations in his life. An amazing novel!

The Sea-Hawk

by Rafael Sabatini

An excellent adventure tale of injustice and revenge. As in Captain Blood, be prepared for a long slog through excessive background development - but it's well worth the effort once the real story gets started.

The Betrayal

by E. Phillips Oppenheim

Finding his appointment for employment unexpectedly cancelled, a young man accepts a secretarial position with a Duke in a small English seaside village and soon finds himself at the heart of an international conspiracy. A page turner with a nice level of suspicion and suspense throughout.
