'The details are faithful in every respect, for the story is composed by a man who is thoroughly familiar with Australian racing conditions. In addition to the dramatic, there is a gripping love interest. A beautiful girl, tortured by the idea that the man she loved was crooked, unknowingly works with him to expose a low trick. The unfortunate "rough passage" of Laurie Larland. who, upon his return from the war, finds himself jilted and 'broke,' his subsequent attempt to regain his lost manhood, his fight to prevent crooked work upon the race track, and the grand finale, when he unmasks the villains and wins happiness in the arms of his chosen one, is all so well told that "A Rough Passage" cannot fail to please the most exacting.'
