"PETER RUFF' IN BOOK POSH.
Tfew Oppenhelm Volume Attractive
In Slany Itespects.
This volume, from the lightning-penned,
author of so many romances, is a typical
Oppenhelm tale, but one- could only wish
that the author bad applied himself a
bit more carefully to the construction of
the plot, which t decidedly loose.
Peter Ruff, who first establishes himself
as a priyate detective and later becomes
the chief of one of the most powerful
secret societies of Europe the 'DoubI
Four" is a shrewd. cooL and resource
ful Englishman, who has a set of rathtr
extraordinary adventures before the final
chapter. There are murders, captures.
and escapes. Whether in outwitting John
Dorry, ot Scotland Tard. or ln circum
venting the bold plans of Count Ten
Horn, the Austrian spy, our hero Is as
alive aa Sherlock Holmes, although by Bo
means as attractive a character. In fact,
one would say that the volume Is not one
of the talented author's best productions.
The book Is well illustrated and attrac
tively bound. Little. Brown & Co.. pub
