First Edition. Robb dustjacket art. Murder, mystery and suspense follow fast upon each other in this novel. A young English girl of pure blood, Ivy Myrtle, is adopted when a young baby by an Eurasian family. As she grows up she becomes very beautiful and causes much trouble by her waywardness. The various attempts made by English people to get her away, while the son of the ruling prince desires to marry her. The theft of some priceless black pearls, an outbreak of cholera, and finally, her marriage with David, half gypsy and half Scotch, all help to make this an enthralling story. The characterization is extraordinarily well done, and the contrast between he European and the Eurasian temperament is interesting. Very scarce title.
