Cloud, The Smiter
by Arthur Gask (1926)
Arthur Cecil Gask (1872-1951) was born in London and practised as a dental surgeon for more than forty years in England and Australia. Following retirement in 1933 he devoted himself to writing. He died in North Adelaide, South Australia.
The first novel featuring Gilbert Larose, this is the story of a Master-Criminal and his associates in crime. How, for years they defied all the forces of law and order in the great Commonwealth of Australia, how they plotted in the obscurity of a lonely bungalow by the sea and how finally they were run to earth by minds more subtle even than their own. A tale of thrilling interest, it tells how one word spoken on a lonely road at night proved the undoing of the whole band and loosed the avalanche that engulfed them all.
