'The Copper Box' (1923)
- THE COPPER BOX. By J. S. Fletcher.
The George H. Doran Co., New York.
'The Outlook,' May 30, 1923:
"Among the writers of mystery stories Mr. Fletcher is
distinguished by a certain refinement of style and quality
of writing. The present tale is light, contains no horrible
murder and no detective worth speaking of, but it has a
queer little mystery which holds the reader's attention
steadily to the end. Few mystery stories have so pleasant
a tone or so much quiet humor."
'The Bookman,' July 1923:
"The storm, the lonely country house, and the girl; also the
whimsical motto engraved on the box itself; an agreeable
mysteriousness with no great mystery."
