McTaggart consults with a doctor, who, after careful examination, credits his astonished patient with a double heart. This quality of existence pursues him morally as well as physically, for he is concerned with a Parisian adventuress who tries to entangle him for financial purposes, and Cydonia, the beautiful daughter of a nouveau riche. A many-sided novel this, full of incident, stimulating and suggestive, with a bold and generous view.

"You're not married, you say? Well--you'd better be careful. It might lead to bigamy! If so, refer to me."

A curious expression came into the young man's face as he echoed the other's laugh with a trace of confusion.

"A fair wife and a dark one? Porridge and ... Chianti!"

He paid his fee and went out into the London fog.
