Stark House reprints Oppenheim's
The Amazing Judgment (1897).

Happy to see that Stark House Press has reissued E. Phillips Oppenheim's hard-to-find novel The Amazing Judgment (1897) and Mr. Laxworthy's Adventures (1913); according to this review in the August 9, 1913, issue of New Zealand's Evening Post, the latter "holds the anxious and unwavering attention of the reader throughout." Oppenheim (1866–1946) was a favorite author of President Woodrow Wilson and Supreme Court Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr., as well as an inspiration for the thrillers of John Buchan.
