J S Fletcher was one of the original mystery writers; his books date back to the early 1900's. As such, they have somewhat a quaint, comfortable feel to them when compared to the works of more modern mystery writers. This book is a fairly typical Fletcher mystery. I find most of the book very engaging, but, as I often find to be the case with Fletcher, the ending is somewhat disappointing. Too often his endings are either far fetched, involve too much of a coincidence, or, in this case, very anti-climatic (not a very interesting resolution of the central mystery). Despite the let downs, I do like reading Fletcher novels, this one included. The basic story lines are fun, the mystery's are engaging, and the characters old-fashion, but interesting. What is of special interest in this novel is that much of it follows the activities, not of what one would identify as the novel's hero, but those of an amoral scamp whose main interest is in trying to besmear the hero in order to gain some personal advantage. Worth reading despite but disappointing ending.

Fine story for the time period in which it was written.

The typos involved in the transcribing of this book were absolutely ridiculous. There were entire sections of the story that were lost entirely. And they were important sections, too.

Very boring.  The plot was boring, the characters never really developed.  I skipped many parts of the book just to get through it.
