┬áIn the reign of James II, rejected love turns the exquisite, soulful Anthony Armadale into the grim, misogynistic outlaw Captain Midnight, the terror of the wealthy autocrats who consider themselves above the law. Encouraging him in his daring interventions between tyranny and and its victims, the little parson Aeneas Wade never guesses his identity. But the lovely Lady Clarissa Fane sees through the bitterness to the true man. This was Farnol’s last book, finished in rough form before his death and edited for publication by his widow, Mrs. Phyllis Farnol.
