The House of Intrigue

The House of Intrigue  (1918) 
by Arthur Stringer
Indianapolis: The Bobbs-Merrill Company, 1918. Illustrated by Armand Both

Arthur Stringer's "The House of Intrigue" is a second detective story with a familiar crew of thieves of both sexes, lawyers, a doctor, an heiress, and a detective, who at the end straightens out the whole affair. If only Mr. Stringer, who is a writer of real ability, had chosen a more startling climax and a better explanation for the mystery the book would have been one of the biggest successes ever offered to a public demanding to be thrilled. As it is, the story is entertaining and worthy of banishing sleep until the end is reached. —The Forum, June 1918.
