KIRKUS REVIEW

Berry, Jonah, Hoy, Daphne and Jill all together, after turning Whiteladies over to their country, look for land in the French Pyrcness on which to build a dream-house. These are their detailed experiences with their problems, as they quarry out the mountain, lay foundations, find the proper installations, discuss with their neighbors and workman each new idea. During the long period of housebuilding and furnishing, they are on the track of the man who killed one of their best friends, and with the house a fail accompli, and this war beginning, they round off their case against the killer and see justice done. For the followers of Jonah & Co. and Berry & Co., these further, if more subdued, adventures of the Englishmen who make light of difficult tasks.
