|Title:||The City of Peril|
|Publisher:||McClelland and Stewart|
A swift story is this, incredibly swift, with an inordinately wealthy young man as the central figure of the action. He is spurred to life by the mocking thrust of a girl, jumps into a mystery of the New York underworld involving machinations of the Reds and incidentally meets there the brown-eyed girl who is apparently involved in the network of the nefarious underground pursuits and practices of the enemies to society. How he wins out holds the reader’s breathless interest, leaving no time whatever to pick flaws in the story which, unquestionably improbable and highly melodramatic, is nevertheless most engrossing.

Author Bio for Stringer, Arthur
Arthur Stringer (February 26, 1874 – September 13, 1950) was a Canadian novelist, screenwriter, and poet who later moved to the United States.
He published 45 works of fiction and 15 other books, in addition to writing numerous filmscripts and articles.
Stringer was popular in his day for his crime fiction and his wilderness adventures, but he wrote in many genres, from social realism (his "Prairie" trilogy, 1915–1921) to psychological fiction (The Wine of Life (1921)). He even wrote early science fiction novels, The Story Without a Name (1924) with Russell Holman, and The Woman Who Couldn't Die (1929).
Much of his writing was for films. Film scripts on which he worked include The Perils Of Pauline (1914), The Hand Of Peril (1916), The House Of Intrigue (1919), Unseeing Eyes (1923), Empty Hands (1924), The Canadian (1926), The Purchase Price (1932), The Lady Fights Back (1937), Buck Benny Rides Again (1940) and The Iron Claw (1941).--Wikipedia.
