Sir Wingrave Seton allowed himself to be imprisoned for nine years rather than betray a lady’s honor. Seeking revenge for his incarceration, he acquires immense wealth for the sole purpose of destroying the lives of others. A lonely Boston housewife, a young stockbroker, and an orphaned daughter of a church organist all seem to be headed for life disasters. Just in time, however, a mysterious benefactor saves each of them.

Seton ultimately sets his sights on the woman who conspired with her husband to betray him. He takes great pleasure in watching the couple suffer the pain he inflicts upon them. But a new young lover slowly starts to thaw the Malefactor’s icy heart, prompting him to abandon his misanthropic plans. But is it too late?

About the Author
Author E. Phillips Oppenheim

Edward Phillips Oppenheim (1866–1946), an English novelist, was a major and successful writer of genre fiction, particularly thrillers. Featured on the cover of Time magazine in 1918, he was the self-styled “prince of storytellers.” He published more than a hundred novels, mostly stories of suspense and international intrigue, as well as romances, comedies, and parables of everyday life. Perhaps Oppenheim’s most enduring creation is the character of General Besserley, the protagonist of General Besserley’s Puzzle Box and General Besserley’s New Puzzle Box, which is one of Oppenheim’s last works. His work possesses a unique charm, featuring protagonists who delight in Epicurean meals, surroundings of intense luxury, and the relaxed pursuit of criminal practice on either side of the law. Oppenheim’s first novel, which was about England and Canada, was called Expiation. This was followed by such titles as The Betrayal, The Avenger, The Governors, The Double Life of Mr. Alfred Burton, An Amiable Charlatan, The Black Box, The Double Traitor, The Cinema Murder, The Box With Broken Seals, The Devil’s Paw, and The Evil Shepherd.
