Muriel Yorke has a fond husband, but he is so absorbed in his duties as head of the detective bureau that he has little time to devote to his wife. He is inattentive, not intentionally, but the fact remains that all of Muriel's pretty arts designed to distract him from his work are in vain. Time hangs heavily on her hands; she takes her meals alone, and gradually sinks into a state of melancholy. One evening while in search of recreation, Muriel visits a fashionable café unattended, and there meets Eric Le Blanc, a gentleman in manners, but in reality the chief of a band of international conspirators. He introduces himself as the Baron de Corril and Muriel keeps her identity a secret. Their friendship soon ripens into love, but Yorke is so deeply absorbed in his duties that he fails to notice the change that has come over his wife.

The story is weak and meaningless
25 May 2018 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A four-reel special featuring Betty Nansen, whose work makes the picture a commendable offering. All the characters are interesting, but the story is weak and meaningless, except 4that Miss Nansen's playing persuades us that the emotions are actually felt in spite of lack of logical humanity in what causes them. It is poorly named. What the discontented wife of the detective, who is too busy on an important case to give her any of his attention, loses by her willful infatuation for the strange young man is not Paradise to her and it is not shown that she ever realized that it could be. The staging and photography, as is usual with pictures of this kind, are both life-like and distinguished. - The Moving Picture World, March 7, 1914
