The Czar's Spy

by William le Queux

This is a very good novel of multiple crimes and political intrigues. Don't hold your hopes too high of figuring it all out, not even the characters know what is happening. Good entertainment.

The Blind Spot

by Austin Hall

A prominent professor of philosophy claims to have tangible proof of occult phenomena and schedules a lecture to present his findings. The professor vanishes shortly before his lecture, last seen in the company of a mysterious stranger. The book contains some interesting ideas and characters, but points of interest are few and far between. A good editor could probably extract a four star short story from this bloated two star novel.

Talents, Incorporated

by Murray Leinster

Excellent sci-fi novel - a very entertaining story of interstellar conquest, resistance, and paranormal mental activites. Highly recommended.

The Lone Wolf

by Louis Joseph Vance

An excellent crime pulp novel. A master jewel thief is pressured to join forces with a criminal organization jealous of his success. The romantic interest is a bit heavy handed, but all in all this is an excellent story with plenty of action, suspense, and a few interesting surprises.
