City at World's End

by Edmond Hamilton

I give the author credit for coming up with an intriguing plot concept. A 20th century town is thrown intact through time, millions of years into the future, where the citizens find a nearly dead planet earth. Unfortunately the plot and behavior of the characters soon become unrealistic, annoying, and predictable.

The Chestermarke Instinct

by J.S. Fletcher

An enjoyable crime novel which, unfortunately, collapses at the ending with a rushed and contrived story line.

An Amiable Charlatan

by E. Phillips Oppenheim

A British gentleman befriends a charming con-man and his beautiful stepdaughter. I highly recommended it for some light amusement. This seems like the sort of thing the film industry would have jumped on at one time, I wonder if it was ever made into a movie?
