"It is impossible to give any idea of the verve with which the story is told. The most original novel of the year!"--The Manchester Courier.
"Mr. Boothby never allows the interest of their doings to drop from first page to last; and he tells his tale in a pleasant, brisk fashion that carries the reader along, and is as convincing a vehicle as could be chosen for the relation of strange adventures such as befell the hero and his friends."--London Times.
