Barbour, A.M.: That Mainwaring Affair. v1, 27 Jan 2008
Perhaps the longest roll of hackneyed devices in one book is found in "That Mainwaring Affair," by A.M. Barbour, but on the otherhand, this book has a most excellent and interesting story and of exceedingly good construction. The surprise is perfect and the plot original.
It includes the return of a long-lost brother, supposed to have been shipwrecked years before; stolen family jewels, a missing will; a twin brother; a birthmark identification; an illegitimate son of a designing housekeeper; a suspected private secretary; whispered words conveying the secret; a dragged lake; and innumerable disguises.
