      BRITZ, OF HEADQUARTERS.
      By Marcin Barber.
      Moffat, Yard & Co.
      1910. 394 pages.

      Full review:

      "It may not be fair to expect much knowledge of the
      Orient from a maker of detective stories, although he
      centres his plot about the oft-used theft of a great
      Oriental diamond. But even a writer who seems to
      have watched the world from the windows opposite
      the old headquarters on Mulberry Street should not
      set a band of Brahmins on the recovery of a stone
      which had once been in a Buddhist temple. Mr.
      Barber does not make Fifth Avenue society much
      more real than his Brahmin-Buddhists; but his Britz
      is a good detective of the old school, with yet a
      tinge of originality in his make-up, and the plot
      which Britz unravels is sufficiently devious and
      doubtful to satisfy the taste of an exacting
      connoisseur of this branch of fiction."
