Gask, Arthur: The House on the Island. V1. 12 June 2012

The House on the Island
by Arthur Gask (1932)

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.

Synopsis:
Featuring Gilbert Larose.

Excerpt: "...For six months the towns and country-side of the Eastern Counties have been terrorised by a bandit who robs and kills upon the slightest provocation. Upon eleven separate occasions since January last we have had to record his deeds of crime. He has attacked banks and private dwelling places and his successes have been as monotonous as have been the failures of the police to apprehend him. Now,—we have a right to ask and we intend to press home our question,—who is this man who hovers like a baleful shadow over the land, what are his resources that he can ride every time through the cordon that surrounds him, and who are his confederates that they can baffle all attempts at their uncovering?"
