'In the new story the setting is a lonely lsand off a stretch of the Essex coast; unnumbered narrow creeks up which the tides surge like carrion beasts ravening for their prey, and long wastes of marshland with their girdles of black mud—the fitting home and hiding place of crime. For many months a band of criminals had been harrying the English countryside, defying all efforts of the authorities to uncover them. Then Larose arrived in England and speedily got upon their trail. It is a thrilling story of mystery and adventure, featuring Gilbert Larose at his best.'
