"Jimmie Dale, the gentleman adventurer, is back on the scent with the King of crim and quarry. Over the head of the woman he loves hangs a menace from the gang, she and Jimmie have often thwarted, and through the previous volume saw the leader disposed of, and they free to marry and live their own lives. But Marie knows that there is still one, 'The Phantom,' who menaces her. She again disappears to work out her own salvation . . . Jimmie too resumes his underworld work. "; 6¾" - 7¾" Tall
