AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Involved tale of mystery and romance. A reclusive gentleman rescues two ladies from the tide and falls in love with the beautiful Irene Grahame. Her father refuses permission to marry because of a shameful secret - and is soon after murdered. With the help of a London detective the real murderer and the real victims are uncovered, Grahame is found alive and his return rescues his daughter from the brain fever her discovery of the shameful secret has caused. Involvement of a Polish conspirator and his secret society with the blackmailing 'keeper of the shameful secret' complicate the plot further. (PB)
