Summary (From the publisher):

Greedy materialism, especially when it calculatingly shuns all the finer human emotions, can turn any man into an inhuman monster. To Emery Pride, self-made millionaire tycoon, it did precisely that. Consumed as he was by his inordinate love of the moneybags, loss of wife and daughter meant nothing to him in his acquisitive mode of life.

Blackmailed - by his own long-lost daughter, so he believed - Pride forged a diabolical plot that brought even rape and murder within his vile compass. He might have succeeded in his deadly, double-crossing scheming had he not commissioned Hank Janson to find the girl and act as go-between in the blackmail.

If our intrepid newshawk ever nursed any false ideas about the particular brand of crime in our own London Town as being any less tough and violent than he invariably finds it in Chicago and other American cities, he should be wiser after this Pride affair.
