A far cry from The Late George Apley, which the title might suggest. This is a story of the conventional inner shrine of Bangor, Maine, and itjs greatest ornament, Colonel Judd, who breaks most of its tenets. And of the threast that hange over him with the releast of his enemy"" of twenty years, the man whose girl he stole, and who came back from jail to promise him an early demise and to tantalize him with the intimation that his dautheter lives. Theis is the story of how the colonel beat him at his own game and made good his sin of the past. A readable and rather original story.
