Alas! Poor Father

(1972)
A novel by

 
 
Brigadier Basil Patricott, presently engaged on hush hush business for the foreign office, is a man able to cope with anything - except his two small motherless sons. As a result they run wild in the company of an eccentric Irish pigeon fancier, living with his sinister brother in a house of mysterious locked doors.

Then one of the boys goes exploring, and what he sees behind those doors marks him down for immediate death.
