"If indeed "the great affair is to move", then Charles Nelo Sangster, the charmingly disreputable hero of this diverting new novel, is a man of great affairs thrice over. Certainly his picaresque adventures propel him, in the brief months following his release from prison, into a desperate chase through nine countries, two proposals of marriage, and a score or more of extraordinary encounters."
