Reviews - What do customers think about The Avalanche?
Not much of a gamble Feb 20, 2005
Gertrude Atherton loved to give her main character, usually a woman, a secret. Helene Price's secret is that she is a compulsive gambler. Her husband spends the novel trying to figure out what's going on--suspecting blackmail. All of it is pretty hard to take and is rather shallow.
