9781933586274: The Amazing Judgment / Mr. Laxworthy's Adventures

THE AMAZING JUDGMENT The world-weary Lord Hildyard, Marquis of Esholt, is on a yachting tour with a group of friends, including his kept lover, Pauline Owston. When Hildyard spies an apparently uninhabited island, he slips off the ship in search of adventure. What he finds is the exotic woman-child, Bertha, and her guardian, Stanley Owston, estranged husband of Pauline. Before the yachting party returns, Hildyard discovers himself in love with Bertha, and vows to return for her. But when the Owstons are dramatically reunited, Stanley confesses to his wife that Bertha is the daughter whom she has not seen in twelve years. Will Hildyard ever find the love he seeks, or is his love for Bertha now doomed beyond hope? MR. LAXWORTHY S ADVENTURES For Mr. John T. Laxworthy, detection is a serious game, and all of Europe is his playground. In a series of 12 adventures, Laxworthy travels with a well-padded wallet and two sporting companions, following only his instincts and the scent of money to be made. Along the way, he nabs an international burglar, exposes a cross-dressing murderer, foils a plot to steal battleship plans, and even helps a respected criminal opponent recover 40,000 pounds owed him by an unscrupulous London banker. Laxworthy is an amateur sleuth and an adventurer: urbane, clever, and oh-so-British. You ll cheer him on as he always gets his man and, in the end, even his woman.

About the Author:

E. Phillips Oppenheim, the prince of storytellers, was born in London, England on October 22nd, 1866. He left school at the age of seventeen to help at his father's leather business. When a U.S. company bought the business, Oppenheim was able to pursue his writing career. He published over 150 books in his lifetime--novels, short stories, plays—and is considered one of the originators of the thriller genre. He died in 1946.

Review:

As a reader and collector of E. Phillips Oppenheim for 40 years, I was never able to find a copy of The Amazing Judgment. Today, 40 years of frustration ends and I can't wait to see if the lost novel meets the great story-telling standards of this outstanding author. --Otto Penzler, owner of The Mysterious Bookshop

Readers of Mr. Oppenheim's novels may always count on a story of absorbing interest, turning on a complicated plot, worked out with dexterous craftsmanship. --Literary Digest, New York

Mr. Oppenheim is a past master of the art of constructing ingenious plots and weaving them around attractive characters. --London Morning Post
