KIRKUS REVIEW

Mysterious corridors, secret identities, and two young girls who put the jig-saw together to make the face of the heir apparent to the French throne! The time is 1870- the place New York City -- and Susan Thurlow and her chum stumble on some curious items relating to Mr. St. Croix, who lived aloofly across the street. The glamor of mysterious scions of France's noble houses in hiding may still have appeal for today's children, but Miss Seaman assumes too much background knowledge for the average young American who knows little of sides and issues. Nonetheless, despite slight background, superficial characterization and doubtful values, Miss Seaman has, over the years, developed plot patterns and formulae that sell any adventure between covers.
