A contemporary review:

Vanished Messenger (The) By E. Phillips Oppenheim. Little, Brown & Co. $1.30

Mr. Oppenheim again exhibits his skill in weaving an exciting plot, and again the background of his story is found in international complications of the great Powers of Europe. The “vanished messenger” is on his way from America, bearing a message from the great money kings of the United States which will surely prevent a threatened war by a coalition of the great Powers against England. He disappears on a stormy night on which he was expected to cross the Channel to the Continent. What became of him, how nearly he escaped death at the hands of a human monster who plots war and destruction for all the world, and how he was rescued in time to save the situation, make up a story which is not the less thrilling because it is totally improbable. Incidentally there is a love story, but it is of the slightest interest.” – The Outlook, August 15, 1914
