Old J. M. Lawrence, commonly known as the lion of Wall Street, one of the biggest financiers—and one of the worst-hated men—in America, had received letters threatening assassination. Much against his will the old man applied for police protection. From the police point of view there wasn’t a worse risk in town. Old “J.M.” was dogmatic and wilful as a spoiled child, and likely to resent protection. The police selected young Dan Woburn as personal guard, and Dan, with the prospects of a police lieutenancy and the hand of Julia Dormer if he succeeded, grimly settled down to his task. The Ring of Eyes is an enjoyable mystery story, with swift action, crisp dialogue, and an ingenious plot which is excitingly solved.—Introduction. [Suggest a different description.]

Author Bio for Footner, Hulbert

Author Image

Hulbert Footner (1879–1944) was a Canadian writer of non-fiction and detective fiction.

His most successful creation was the beautiful and brilliant Madame Rosika Storey and her plain assistant who explains the evolving solutions to her boss’ cases. His Madame Storey mysteries fit the flapping 1920s like the long lizard gloves that graced her arms and did well supporting his traveling family’s lifestyle. His Rosika Storey cases appeared in Argosy All-Story Weekly every year from 1922 through 1935.--Wikipedia.
