MISS BRADDON'S NEW NOVEL

At all Libraries, in 3 vols.

THE FATAL THREE

OPINION OF THE ATHENÆUM. * The plot is full and not a little intricate ; but it is woven by a practised band, with a skill not simply born of writing many stories. As for the incidents, they are generally fresh and natural. The time has long gone by when Miss Braddon could be laughed at for an excess of sensationalism. There is nothing of the kind in her last novel, which is & really able romance, woven out of the lives of men and women such as we meet and know in the world around us.'
