AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Phillip Northcote, the proud middle-aged master of a rich Australian station, asks his friend Dr Clayton to investigate the ghost of his father reported near the mausoleum the old man had erected for his burial place but was ignored by his son. The doctor and the old gardener suspect the girl of hiding a man there - and Northcote follows her and shoots her 'accidentally' when he discovers them together. It is her brother, a wanted criminal, whom she meets. Innocence betrayed and murdered by man's rigid pride. (PB)
