The Box with Broken Seals

by E. Phillips Oppenheim

When it comes to spies there is no one who can hold a candle to E. Phillips Oppenheim. He is positively inspired in the weaving and unravelling of international intrigue and his secret service men have wonderful times. When they miss transatlantic liners they take up the chase in airplanes. They dine nightly at the Claridge and the Savoy. They send their ladies daily bouquets of American Beauties. Not one of them stirs without at least three detectives on his heels and, under stress of emotion, they indulge in lightning changes of facial expression which would make their fortunes on the screen. Oh, The Box with Broken Seals is a good story. It explains what happened to the documents which were not found in Ambassador Bernstorff's chest when he sailed from America.
