The Diamond Pendant - aka The Black Opal

As part of the continuing Maxwell Gray project, I just finished reading her last novel (though not her last published work): the 1918 The Diamond Pendant, retitled The Black Opal in the USA. Like many/most of Maxwell Gray's works, it's loosely a romantic melodrama, though with crime fiction elements, set in the years immediately before the First World War.

Revision: the original post here has now been incorporated into my book A Wren-like Note: the life and works of Maxwell Gray (Mary Gleed Tuttiett). See the official site,
