Grand adventure in the high manner -- wild moors -- mysterious midnight marauders -- strange eerie happenings -- piracy and wrecking and smuggling and murder -- an innkeeper who turns guests away -- his wife, cowed and terrified -- an albino in the guise of a clergyman -- and a girl whose courage and curiosity help to uncover the dastardly truth of it all. Good reading -- and good writing. The jacket has selling qualities. The colored posters supply excellent sales aids.
