Excerpt

y other way they were delightful--especially Mrs. Gastrell, though I was greatly attracted by Gastrell too, when I came to know him towards the end of the voyage."

CHAPTER II

THE ANGEL FACES

Hugesson Gastrell had accepted Lord Easterton's invitation to dine at the club, and the three men were seated near the fire as I entered, Easterton and Jack Osborne on one of the large settees, their visitor facing them in an arm-chair, with his back to me. I went towards them across the big room, apologizing for my unpunctuality, for I was nearly ten minutes late. To my surprise they remained silent; even Easterton did not rise, or greet me in any way. He looked strangely serious, and so did Jack, as a rule the cheeriest of mortals.

"I am dreadfully sorry for being so late," I exclaimed, thinking that my unpunctuality must have given them offence. I was about to invent some elaborate excuse to account for my "delay," when the man seated with his back to me suddenly rose

*****

A good fanciful story of mystery/adventures/romance (in this order), somewhat remindful of Rocambole and Fântomas.
Set in London and Paris, has a distinct French taste.
Strange happenings, mysterious and artful personages, aristocracy, jewels, very bad guys versus very good guys but not too sweet, and a great variety of action.
You won't lose sleep reading it but you also won't quit until you get to the last page.
