Featuring Gilbert Larose.
But for the timely intervention of Inspector Stone, Gilbert Larose, who
has brought an end to many a dangerous criminal, might himself have been
arrested for murder. As it was, the weight of evidence was
overwhelmingly against him, and he was compelled to bring into play all
his wit and resource in an effort to establish his own innocence.
His researches led him to a dark, lonely, jealously-guarded house deeply
hidden in the Norfolk fens where he stumbled upon the triple mystery of
a rich recluse, a criminal impersonation and a girl in dire distress.
Regardless of danger and his own interests he decided to probe the
affair to its depths.
