"A demented millionaire is convinced his awful son will be kidnapped for ransom, and Hooky Hefferman finds himself acting as companion and guard to the boy in a remote house on Exmoor. It looks like a cushy number, even if the youth is pretty intolerable. Hooky is drawn, as always, to the local inn, where he makes his usual acquaintances. But who are the real villains and what confusion will reign until they are finally unmasked?"

Laurence Meynell was born in Wolverhampton and educated at St Edmund's College, Hertfordshire. He served in the Artillery during WW1, and after leaving the army in 1919 taught for a short time, before working as a land agent in the Midlands. He had always wanted to write, however, and after winning the publisher Harrap's novel competition in 1924 became a successful and prolific author who, although best known for his crime fiction, also wrote non-fiction and children's books. He was married twice, to writer Shirley Darbyshire, with whom he had a daughter, Ann, and to Joan Belfrage.
