It's 1926 and Jennifer Langton is working as a typist at an estate agent when she gets the chance to view a house. A house that the agents want to rent out. But arriving at Saunder's Green she finds the house familiar, and in the garden she sees a monster. Later that day she recounts everything to her close friend Betty and her husband Major Jack Haldean. Haldean having had experiences in solving mysteries.
An enjoyable mystery, with the story starting slowly, setting the scene then the clues are introduced. Though the book was written in the modern times it had the feel of the 'Golden Age of Detective Fiction'.
Although this is part of a series, though the first one for me, it can easily be read as a standalone story.
