When Lord Wolfenden saw, in the supper-room of the Milan Restaurant, a beautiful woman and became acquainted with her by saving the life of her elderly companion, the mysterious Mr. Sabin, as they leave the restaurant, he little knew the web of intrigue into which he was entering. It was impossible not to love the unknown, and it seemed equally impossible to marry her when her identity was known, but Mr. Oppenheim can be depended upon to give his plots that turn which is as admirable as it is unexpected, and this is one of the best of his many good and exciting books.

and wife, I should think," he said thoughtfully, "yet one never can tell!"

Involuntarily they all three glanced towards the man. He was well preserved and his little imperial and short grey moustache were trimmed with military precision, yet his hair was almost white, and his age could scarcely be less than sixty. In his way he was quite as interesting as the girl. His eyes, underneath his thick brows, were dark and clear, and his features were strong and delicately shaped. His hands were white and very shapely, the fingers were rather long, and he wore two singularly handsome rings, both set with strange stones. By the side of the table rested the stick upon which he had been leaning during his passage through the room. It was of smooth, dark wood polished like a malacca cane, and set at the top with a curious, green, opalescent stone, as large as a sparrow's egg.

an enjoyable read. twists and turns galore. enjoyable descriptions about the upper-crust and by-gone days. i thought the way the book switched from following lord wolfenden to following mister sabin was strange. still enjoyed the book.
This was my first knidle book experience and not all the usual type I read but it was a great story for the holiday by the pool and want to find more like it!
I really enjoyed this book, intrigue, refined living, a refreshing change from the US style trash that seems to abound.
Yes I like Edgar Wallace too.
This was really good! At first, I thot it would be dumb, but the story really sucked me in, and now, I am working my way thru the rest of Oppenheim's 'thrillers'.

Fans of Edgar Wallace might enjoy this and others by the same author.
