AbstractHistoryArchive Description

A college undergraduate holidaying and recuperating with a bachelor uncle falls in love with the delicate daughter of a neighbouring chemist. The father is often away, and the daughter begins to see ghosts. The hero is called away to London twice, but first discovers that the girl is missing. She has been tied up by the gang of couriers - counterfeiters - which her father heads. The undergraduate is wounded and tied up - but rescued by a young London detective and his men. He recovers to find his beloved missing and her father imprisoned. (PB)
