Inhaltsangabe: The village of Saltey, once the haunt of smugglers, is harbouring a secret. When a transistor thought to be the key to telepathic communication is found, Albert Campion is called to sort fact from fiction. But the device at the centre of the mystery is in the possession of two schoolboys and whether they stole it or invented it, there are others who will kill to get hold of it. The ancient hamlet of Saltey, once the haunt of smugglers, now hides a secret rich and mysterious enough to trap all who enter – and someone in town is willing to terrorise, murder and raise the very devil to keep that secret to themselves. Private detective Albert Campion faces as deadly a challenge as any in his career. ‘My very favourite of the four queens of crime is Allingham.’ – J.K. Rowling ‘The best of mystery writers.’ –The New Yorker
