OF

A

CARDINAL SIN.

BY

HUGH CONWAY,
AUTHOR OF 'Called BACK,' 'A FAMILY AFFAIR, ETC.

A Cardinal Sin” is a capital novel-better far than “ Called Back," and indeed containing finer and better work than “A Family Affair.” The plot is ingeniously complicated and cleverly unravelled. The interest never flags, but increases in its intensity. Altogether, it is fortunate for the reading public that “A Cardinal Sin " should have been found complete among Mr Conway's posthumous papers.'--Westminster Review.

"“A Cardinal Sin” would have taken the world by storm, and made the author's name and fortune, had he not been beyond the reach of good or evil. Taken all in all, it is one of the most enthralling pieces of fiction of the last five-and-twenty years.'— Vanity Fair.

"We must confess to being profoundly astonished at the strength and power displayed in this book, which would have been certain to have added considerably to Mr Conway's reputation, had he not unfortunately dropped from the ranks.'—Whitehall Review.

""A Cardinal Sin” may be safely recommended. It may be assumed that it will be largely in demand at the circulating libraries and bookstalls.'-The Globe.

"“A Cardinal Sin” is a powerfully-told sensation novel, with a strong plot skilfully constructed and well worked out.'— The Guardian.

'That “A Cardinal Sin” is a powerful story is of course a foregone conclusion

portrayed in the author's most powerful style.'-Morning Post.

• The book may teach a lesson to the author's imitators, if they cannot learn it from other masters of the art. ... The foundation upon which the plot rests is constructed with solid accuracy.'— Athenæum.
