I supposed that they had taken liberties enough with my attire; there was proof on the envelopes and in the letters they contained that I was who I claimed to be, which must have been plain to the red-faced man. But I was mistaken in imagining that they had subjected me to enough indignity.

Oh, my. This one keeps you going from the first page. I enjoyed it immensely. A case of mistaken identity results in a young affianced couple risking everything for a chance to "have it all." Spies, plots, and counterplots--is anyone who they seem to be? There is danger everywhere, and only quick thinking can save an innocent girl and her fiance from certain death when they pit themselves against a ruthless band of criminals. Definitely a must read. Once again, I stayed up way too late with this one. Enjoy.
