Plot bullets

An honorably discharge vet wants to put some adventure back into his life.
He advertises for adventure in the newspaper. No this is not Bulldog Drummond.
A girl asks his help in a puzzling affair which is making her doubt her sanity.
Others tell her that she has been seen places and done things that she knows nothing about.
He is treading where more than bravery and devotion is required and has fallen in love with his client.
He has gotten involved with both The Case and the Girl.

It's a good romance-detective story. The plot revolves along the two twin sisters. The heroine is a girl of gracious nature. The hero's character was persistent. Overall a nice detective book to read along with some romantic moments.
