Can it be that any self-respecting person would confess ignorance of Pew, the blind beggar who plays his sinister part in Treasure Island? They knew all about him at any rate in the little village adapted from its reality (will you recognize it?) for the purpose of Mr. Ryland's diverting and original thriller. They held a fete in this village, and most of the people concerned in it were dressed as characters from R.L. Stevenson's story. It was a jolly fete and the whole show would have been voted an outstanding success had not two murders been discovered in its midst. It is a perplexing, thrilling story which Mr. Ryland unfolds here, and when Scotland Yard descended upon that quiet West Midland village they asked the question that was perplexing many people: Who was the individual who impersonated Pew so successfully at that fete?
