The Lure of the Mask is a 1908 novel by Harold MacGrath that was the fourth-best selling book in the United States for that year. In 1906-07, MacGrath made visits to Italy, and his impressions from those trips inspired the novel. The story opens with a jump--literally. A young New Yorker, rich, of course, hears from his window on a night of fog and mist a woman's voice singing divinely. He falls in love with it head over heels and he falls downstairs in about the same way, he is such a hurry to see the singer. But by the time her reaches the street, lo! she has vanished, and only a policeman remains.
