Review by Julian Lewis 12/1999
Thorndike's next Doctor Syn novel in the series appeared two years later. The Amazing Quest of Dr Syn set in 1780, chronicles Doctor Syn's fight to be the sole survivor of a tontine when the other less scrupulous members decide to alter the stakes. This story as I recall, I have to admit I haven't read it for a long time though, was more satisfying since it was a complete story in its own right.
