Shall I speak of Zeitoon? This, then: the Turks never conquered it! They came once and built a fort on the opposite mountainside, with guns to overawe us all. We took their fort by storm! We threw their cannon down a thousand feet into the bed of the torrent, and there they lie today!

Uneven and perhaps even ragged during the first third, The Eye of Zeitoon recovers nicely towards its latter third. Zeitoon reintroduces the four characters Mundy created for The Ivory Trail, an anonymous narrator; the American, Will Yerkes; an Englishman, Fred Oakes; and the English aristocrat, Lord Montdidier. Montdidier, or Monty, is the titular head of this band, although, as in The Ivory Trail, he tends to disappear for long passages of time.

The story itself has moved from East Africa to the Ottoman Empire and an Armenian redoubt in the mountains. Mundy has chosen to publicize the Turkish massacres of the Armenians and glorify their great resistance in Zeitoon, hoping, like the Americans in the novel, to spread word of the Amenian cause to the United States.

All in all, it's another fine adventure tale. And, like all the early Mundy stories, crisp and clean in its storytelling. A few recurring motifs: once again, the novel moves to mountainous high ground, where it resolves itself; it also makes use of an Indian Rajput of military origins who proves his honor and worthiness; it also positions the face of empire in eclipse, especially in the person of Monty, whose fate symbolizes the fast approaching fate of colonial Britain.
