The Finger Saturn
By the time Robert Rolt, Devonshire squire, lays a hand on the significance of his wife Sarah's foreshortened third finger, he will have endured much -- more than her two year disappearance and her apparent memory gap. Others beside Rolt are anxious to flu it in particularly since her mother (and she?) is connected with an espionage and illicit data-collecting organization of widespread latent power. Mr. Canning is as always one of the most luxuriously old-world storytellers; red roses and pheasants abound but he should circumvent that cliche (having carelessly ""by Hector""ed you on pages 205, 206 and 209).
