Product Details


The Tracer of Lost Persons "Mr. Keen is an enigmatic older man who promises to find anyone, anywhere... He's aided in his task by a shadowy network of talented experts and a legion of attractive young typists... Unlike Mr. Chambers' other romances, The Tracer of Lost Persons is almost entirely tongue-in-cheek ... there's a charming combination of self-awareness and genuine optimism."--Pornokitsch The Tree of Heaven "Short stories connected only by a device in the first one, where a character predicts the fates of his dinner companions, each of whom has his own story. Some are "weird tales," others are comic, all have romantic plots. The more serious stories have, as a unifying theme, the need for forgiveness between men and women."--Bill McClain, "The Novels of Robert W. Chambers" "A very distinctive book ... reminiscent of the kind of material Algernon Blackwood did so well."--Hugh Lamb, Introduction to Out of the Dark 2
