"This 'story of Fifth avenue life' written in the author's clever vein is the unpleasant account of a man satiated with all the Joys that wealth can buy, who has lost active interest in all things including his charming wife and child. A woman of rare beauty comes into his home to nurse his little girl, and then develops a most heinous plot in which this beautiful viper tries to murder the wife by means of a subtle poison. so that she may win the husband and his wealth. In the excitement of this discovery and the events which follow, in their selfish Joy at their re-union and their re-found happiness, they allow her to go unchallenged and discover too late that she has made another woman and another home her prey."
-Book Review Digest, Volume 2 [1906]
"Mr. Saltus has a strange taste in adjectives and invents words that are new to our dictionaries."
-The Athenaeum "Is a smart and interesting story; no better ethically perhaps than the ordinary "society novel" but immeasurably better than most of that kind in its literary graces.
