THE ORDEAL OF MONICA MARY. By W. L. George. (Hutchinson.

7s. 6d. net.)—This book contains some vivid descriptions of the Mexican Revolution. The portrait of the Commander is able and dramatic. But the three ladies who arc in love with Gentleman Jimmy are none of them very enter- taining and poor Monica Mary's various escapes from death are not as exciting as they might have been.
