KIRKUS REVIEW

The French Casino coast the setting for a Graustarkian mystery-romance, during which expatriate young King Rudolph, of Althenia, regains his throne, two men are murdered, and hidden pasts reveal long threatening blackmail. Anthony Tolworth, English companion of the wandering King, is compelled not only to protect the King from actions in the killing of the unsavory Manetti, but also to eliminate the girl he loves from the suspect class. With the second death, Anthony, aided by a schoolmistress clears all, gets his girl. Frappe.
