On the way Prudence encounters Captain Studde of the coastguard - who is pursuing a quarry of his own.Studde is on the trail of a drug smuggling ring that connects Wellende Hall with the cloistered world of Cambridge. It falls to Prudence to unravel the identity of the smugglers - who may be forced to kill, to protect their secret.This witty and entertaining crime novel has not been republished since the 1930s.
