Boy meets girl, boy and girl fall in love, and things really start happening, including a murder. At this point, Detective Shrig appears on the scene…
In this romance the author tells of the joys and tribulations of parenthood and gives an ideal picture of the perfect human partnership of Charmian and Sir Peter Vibart, the heroes also of that greatest of all romances The Broad Highway. Their son Richard’s adventures are as wild as Peter’s own and culminate in his being involved in a mysterious murder for which, but for Charmian’s faith and courage, he might have been sentenced to death, so strongly did the web of circumstantial evidence envelop him. The story is peopled with scores of those characters which only Mr. Farnol can create.
