The Thief of Virtue, Eden Phillpotts
Scanned by General Books
ISBN 978 0 217 37457 6
I appreciate scanned books have defects. I've read many. This was the worst I've read. The above book should have 17 chapters. Chapter 13 ends after a few paragraphs mid sentence, chapters 14, 15 and 16 are entirely missing and the book then skips to the final 2 pages. As a result, I've read the end without reading any of the chapters building up to that end.
Proof reading may not be cost efficient, but simply checking that all chapters are present and start at top RH pages, and that frequently occurring punctuation marks scan correctly are essential tasks, even for print on demand.

Phillpotts is a master of characterisation and of tender descriptions of the ever changing face of Dartmoor. As always he portrays his characters with sympathy. No-one is wholly good or bad, all are multi-faceted, intriguing and believable. Unusually for Phillpotts this is a tragic book with none of the main characters achieving happiness. I shall never now have the chance to experience the intended tension as threads are gathered and tied as Phillpotts leads us to the conclusion but I will be seeking out a complete, original, copy to read the missing chapters as they were written.
