KIRKUS REVIEW

Shadowy and shivery adventure in this 18th century tale of smuggling and storied treasure. The orphan John Treschard, who happens on the secret of the Mohune tombs, finally with the help of Elzevir, an ian keeper, finds the Mohuse diamond after escaping from arrest for smuggling. From then on escapes, disguises, a touch of romance, capture, and final escape for John keep this in the rhythm of period derring-do. Top adventure yarn.
