David Graham Phillips (1867 – 1911) was an American novelist and journalist of the muckraker tradition. Phillips' novels often commented on social issues of the day and frequently chronicled events based on his real-life journalistic experiences.
“Light-Fingered Gentry” is a great example of intrigue novel written by David Graham Philips. The novel's plot consists of unexpected twists and somewhere unreachable things. The book is somewhat flawed by Phillips' constant preaching against conventional morality, his flawed observations on the human condition and so forth. This is a story of what makes our life stronger and at the same time shorter. Enjoy the reading.
