Here and there in the grim corridors a guard dozed in the glare of an electric light; and in the office, too, a desk light glimmered where the warden sat at his desk, poring over a report anced up at the clock-it was five minutes of eleven-and then he went on with his reading. After a little the silence was broken by the whir of the clock and the first sharp stroke of the hour; and at just that moment the door from the street opened and a man entered. He was rather tall and slender, and a sinister black mask hid his face from the quickly raised eyes of the warden.

rican countries, taken separately, are inconsequential, and that is true, too, of the Latin countries of Europe, except France, but taken in combination, under one directing mind, the allied navies would be-would be formidable, at least. Backed by the moral support of Germany, and perhaps Japan

I've only discovered Futrelle recently and the great thing about old books, of course, is that so many are available to read on Kindle for free. This story I didn't like quite as much, but then again I don't really like spy novels as much as mysteries. There is still that lovely quaintness to his writing and I very much appreciated the strength of the main female character, something quite unusual for 1909. Of course, it's more of an Isabel and Mr. Grimm story, although a female superspy secret agent is infinitely more interesting than a suit trying to prevent some sort of an international political disaster, but there you have it, both of them. Fairy entertaining quick read.

I enjoyed this 1909 short story. Interesting plot and even a surprise or two for this old jaded reader. It has a more acceptable love theme than the usual fluff of the period. A pleasant afternoon read in a hammock.

Oh, Isabel. Wow, this book was amazing. The only reason I'm giving it four stars is because of the boring start.

Ok but not great.

Grab this baby and sample some of the most intriguing and best African-American short stories written. You will recognize some authors and some pieces and others may be new to you – but what better way to explore more of their work?

You might notice that some great African American writers are missing, such as Richard Wright and James Baldwin and others, but you know where to find their work, right?

Relish this potluck of tales that will lead you deeper into African American writing, the African American experiences in America and a literature too often ignored – you won’t be sorry!

Although the history books I've consulted are sadly ill-informed about it, this novel provides the startling news that there was a vast international conspiracy against both the United States and the British Empire in the years before the First World War. It seems that the "Latin nations" of that era, Italy, Spain, France, and various South American countries were on the verge of banding together in a military alliance against the Anglo-Saxon peoples of America and the United Kingdom who they feared were destined to conquer the world through their superior economic power and organizational ability. The Latins chose a young woman of mixed English and Italian ancestry to arrange the signing of the secret agreement that will serve as the prelude to this global war. Her alias was Isabel Thorne and readers would be hard pressed to find a more intelligent, quick-thinking, and resourceful female in the literature of the day. Fortunately, or unfortunately depending on your own national inclinations, her espionage activities in Washington bring her into open conflict with Mr. Grimm of the American Secret Service. Being of a taciturn and humorless nature, he can't match her amiable charm, but his intellect and his sense of duty is on par with her own. This novel details the struggle between these worthy adversaries and makes for terrific reading. I really wish the author had revisited these characters in a future work, both because their relationship is so intriguing and since certain important questions about their respective futures remain unanswered at book's end. But unfortunately, the sinking of the Titanic a few years in the future of this publication put an end to Mr. Futrelle's contributions to popular fiction.
