E. Phillips Oppenheim's Novels
A PRINCE OF SINNERS
Thoroughly matured, brilliantly constructed, and convincingly told.--_London Times_.
It is rare that so much knowledge of the world, taken as a whole, is set between two covers of a novel.--_Chicago Daily News_.
ANNA THE ADVENTURESS
A story of London life that is at once unusual, original, consistent, and delightful.--_Buffalo Express_.
An entrancing story which has seldom been surpa.s.sed as a study of feminine character and sentiment.--_Outlook_, London.
In no other novel has Mr. Oppenheim created such life-like characters or handled his plot with such admirable force and restraint as in this capital story of the career of masterful Enoch Strone.
A SLEEPING MEMORY
A story in occultism, but with all its mysticism and its dealings with the unknowable the book is never dull, the thread of the human story in it is never lost sight of for a moment.--_Boston Transcript_.
MYSTERIOUS MR. SABIN
Emphatically a good story--strong, bold, original, and admirably told.--_Literature_, London.
Intensely readable for the dramatic force with which the story is told, the absolute originality of the underlying creative thought, and the strength of all the men and women who fill the pages.--_Pittsburgh Times_.
THE YELLOW CRAYON
_Containing the Further Adventures of "Mysterious Mr. Sabin"_
The efforts of Mr. Sabin, one of Mr. Oppenheim's most fascinating characters, to free his wife from an entanglement with the Order of the Yellow Crayon, give the author one of his most complicated and absorbing plots. A number of the characters of "Mysterious Mr.
Sabin" figure in this delightful work.
A brilliant and engrossing story of love and adventure and Russian political intrigue. A revolution, the recall of an exiled king, the defence of his dominion against Turkish aggression, furnish a series of exciting pictures and dramatic situations.
In none of Mr. Oppenheim's fascinating and absorbing books has he better ill.u.s.trated his remarkable faculty for holding the reader's interest to the end than in "The Betrayal." The efforts of the French Secret Service to obtain important papers relating to the Coast Defence of England are the _motif_ of its remarkable plot.
A MILLIONAIRE OF YESTERDAY
Mr. Oppenheim has never written a better story than "A Millionaire of Yesterday." He grips the reader's attention at the start by his vivid picture of the two men in the West African bush making a grim fight for life and fortune, and he holds it to the finish. The volume is thrilling throughout, while the style is excellent.
THE MAN AND HIS KINGDOM
This brilliant, nervous, and intensely dramatic tale of love, intrigue, and revolution in a South American State is so human and life-like that the reader is bewildered by the writer's evident daring, and his equal fidelity to things as they are.
THE LOST LEADER
As fascinating a story of modern life as a novelist has yet conceived and one that arrests the mind by its fine strenuousness of purpose.
This amazing story of the strange revenge of Sir Wingrave Seton, who suffered imprisonment for a crime he did not commit rather than defend himself at a woman's expense, "will make the most languid alive with expectant interest," says the _Chicago Record-Herald_.
A MAKER OF HISTORY
A story of absorbing interest turning on a complicated plot worked out with dexterous craftsmans.h.i.+p. A capital yarn of European secret service.--_Literary Digest_.
THE MASTER MUMMER
Will be found of absorbing interest to those who love a story of action and romance.--_Academy_, London.
