_A Traitor's Wooing_] [_Frontispiece_]

_BY THE SAME AUTHOR._

THE AVENGERS.

THE TRIBUNE.--Mr. Headon Hill's new book, "The Avengers," has not a dull line, and one's pulse is kept on the jig all the time. He deserves the highest admiration for the consistent way in which he has avoided the slightest suspicion of probability.

THE LIVERPOOL COURIER.--We can strongly recommend the story. It is one of the best things Mr. Hill has done.

THE DUNDEE ADVERTISER.--"The Avengers" maintains the highest reputation of Mr. Headon Hill as a novelist. The story is crowded with incident, and, unlike many novels of its class, commands the closest interest of the reader from start to finish.

MILLIONS OF MISCHIEF.

THE GLOBE.--Ingenuity could no further go; and besides its ingenuity the story can boast of some clever and effective writing.

THE STAGE.--Not even the late Guy Boothby imagined anything more magnificently preposterous than the motive of Mr. Headon Hill's "Millions of Mischief."

MORNING LEADER.--Mr. Hill has woven a clever and dramatic plot. He has seldom put greater finish into his work, and the result is a striking and vigorous book.

HER SPLENDID SIN.

THE PERTHSHIRE COURIER.--Headon Hill is a master hand at devising and unravelling mysteries. He always gives us good reading with plenty of thrilling incident. He has never told an intensely absorbing story with more dramatic directness than this one. The story is admirably written, the interest never flagging.

THE NORTHERN WHIG.--Her Splendid Sin stands for sensationalism of a decidedly striking sort. The novel is written with vigour and is based on ideas which go to the making of a rattling good story.

THE DUNDEE COURIER.--The reader is hurried breathless from one exciting situation to another, till in the end the nefarious schemes of a syndicate of villains are checkmated, and virtue is rewarded. The book is written in the author's best style.

UNMASKED AT LAST.

THE MORNING LEADER.--Mr. Headon Hill is a past master of thrills and, like Mr. Holmes, causes us almost to believe that the most innocent professions are really dangerous.

THE CHRISTIAN WORLD.--The various sensations are very cleverly devised and Mr. Headon Hill knows how to hold one's attention. The motor car race, which is the closing episode of a well conceived plot, is full of sport, from start to finish.

THE LIVERPOOL COURIER.--The Author has never told an intensely absorbing story with more dramatic directness, and none who once dip into its pages can lay it down willingly until the last chapter has been read.

A RACE WITH RUIN.
