Book description
Clive Palfrey and his sister Sally, arrive back from abroad to find the family mansion in the hands of unfriendly strangers, and determine to restore the fortunes of the house by endeavouring to break in and find the casket and the sword, hidden there by a piratical ancestor in the 17th century. They enlist the help of young Jeremy Shepherd, staying nearby, and the poetical odd-job man Mickey Few, and at last, after a nerve-wracking night and day spent being chased around the estate by keepers and bloodhounds, letting off fireworks to distract their enemies, and encountering boars and other unusual animals let loose in the grounds, they achieve their object.
