The Closing Net  (1912) 
by Henry C. Rowland
[Dodd, Mead, and Company, New York, 1912. Illustrated by A. C. Michael. Part I combines (modified) the short story, The Offender (1910) and the novella, The Underworld (1911.]

The adventures of an expert American burglar who reforms in Paris when he finds his own half-brother facing his pistol. Later the situation turns around and the burglar brother rescues the reforming half-brother and saves him from ruin and disgrace. The book, as the publishers say, is " full of action, thrills, surprises, and red-blooded excitement." If a "movie" has not been made from it, one certainly should be.—Review in the Outlook, Oct 1920
