    1. The man sitting in fron of Von Strobel was heard of as dead; and if he were to anounce his name and stay in Austria, he will be dead. But he holds a most important clue that holds great importance to the welfare of Austria, and Strobel leaves him with a request: "Do something for Austria!" He is a man without a country, a man who speaks with a slight accent, looks like an Englishman, and has chosen to live in the land of Liberty. He is a man who is tired of petty squabbles between kings and poli [...]

    2. I greatly enjoyed this book. I think what I enjoyed more than the story was the fact that there were so many words I had to look up the definitions for! Reading a book as old as this one is always a pleasure as I'm taken back to the English language as it struggles to mark it's independence from British English. The story was rather intriguing as well, and I must say I did not expect the twist at the end as I myself spent most of the book asking the question, Who is John Armitage?

    3. This popular novel of a century ago is essentially a potboiler romance dressed up as a spy thriller.No sooner do we get into the second chapter than there is a rather lengthy (pages!) ‘info dump’ to slow things down and thoroughly bore one. Following that, however, the novel settles into a decent, if not exactly fast-paced, adventure entertainment. One could not accuse Nicholson of being an economical writer --- this book could have been half its length and lost nothing.The characters? Prett [...]

    4. This narrative shows an uncanny insight in the potential volatility of the Balkan countries. The Port of Missing Men is a cloak and dagger story written a few years prior to World War I. Serbia plays a large role in this tale and the chance of a World War id hinted to. This isn’t the only prediction that will prove true. At the dawn of the 20th Century the American public opinion was very much isolationist. Even as war breaks out in Europe the United States wanted to stay out of it. The moment [...]

    5. Free on audio. A small bit of mystery. The hero spying on the villains and a couple other elements pulled this up from a 2 to the 3 I gave it. The book just had no punch. I really did not care for the female lead. Some parts of the book were slow moving. Not the worst, but not the best either. Just rather ho hum.

    6. I read this one a second time after I learned the true identity of John Armitage. I really enjoyed this book!
