The Poison Goblet
by Arthur Gask (1935)
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.
Featuring Gilbert Larose.
Larose has figured in a number of successful stories but in none so successful as The Poisoned Goblet, which tells of the efforts of a gang of men to kidnap the child of Lady Ardane. Larose takes a hand and immediately finds himself faced with one of the most puzzling and certainly one of the most hazardous cases of his career.
