Henry Beechtree, a newspaper correspondent for the British Bolshevist, is covering the latest otherwise sleepy session of the League of Nations in Geneva, when the newly elected President – a member of the Norwegian delegation – disappears mysteriously, adding some badly needed ‘spice’ to Henry's assignment.

Its the 1920s and an otherwise boring session of the League of Nations quickly becomes excitement for Henry Beachtree, a correspondent for the British Bolshevist, when the League's newly elected President disappears. Following this, two more disappearing acts occur coupled with a host of other rather singular happenings. The tale also contains a rather interesting twist at the end...

Listened to this via Librivox and didn't really like this book. I was bored until the very end when you find out about the secret room and then I payed more attention. I kept to the end because it was a mystery and I wanted to know the ending, but I wouldn't recommend it.

A very slow moving plot that fizzles out. There is a surprise mystery at the end, but it's never resolved. I wouldn't bother reading it again.

Emilie Rose Macaulay, whom Elizabeth Bowen called "one of the few writers of whom it may be said, she adorns our century," was born at Rugby, where her father was an assistant master. Descended on both sides from a long line of clerical ancestors, she felt Anglicanism was in her blood. Much of her childhood was spent in Varazze, near Genoa, and memories of Italy fill the early novels. The family r ...more
