[Excerpt] . . . It would be unfair to the book for the reviewer to reveal the mystery [thanks!] that surrounds [John] Howland [the protagonist], because the unravelling of this mystery is all the book has to offer the reader. He ought to be left to find it out for himself [agreed], and it is safe to predict that he will not put the book out of his hand until he does find it out. It will give him an hour of two of exciting reading, and he will regret that the author was so saving with his material. . . . — Grace Isabel Colbron, "Thirteen Books of the Month," THE BOOKMAN (April 1910)
