Alison and her cousin Lorna felt they had been very lucky to land themselvespleasant jobs as housekeepers to elderly Mrs. Storey and her family, in abeautiful house in the Lake District. Alison in particular hoped that nowshe might be able to trace Colin Marriott, who had walked so suddenly andmysteriously out of her life but whom she knew to be living somewherenearby. Find him she did, but to her mortification Colin explained--quitekindly, however!--that Alison was wasting her time in thinking of himseriously, and then proceeded to fall in love with Lorna. But Alison hadthings other than Colic to worry about now, for she had gradually realizedthat not all the Storey family were as agreeable as they had at first seemed- and that, in one of them, she had made a dangerous enemy.
