The House of Evil

A novel by

A brilliant young diplomatist commits suicide as the result of being blackmailed. Shortly afterwards his dearest friend, who has sworn to avenge him, becomes engaged to a charming girl whose uncle proves to be the very centre of a blackmailing group. As the story evolves, his rascality gradually becomes evident...
With a plot of this kind Mr. William Le Queux is thoroughly at home and no one could evolve its incidents with a surer hand than he, and he brings to its exposition all his old skill in contrivance and plot twists. A classic worth rediscovering from the Golden Age of Detection.
