The Queen's Treasure is an old-fashioned adventure tale, set in Kent during the Edwardian era. It features a ruined chapel, a decaying manor house, and that most romantic of all plots -- quest for hidden treasure. A curious cipher found in an old family Vespers book leads two very different men down separate paths in search of Sir Francis Drake's legendary treasure. Before it is discovered, both men meet and fall in love with the same girl, and their search is further complicated by an ever-present police investigator, who is determined to bring one of the two men to justice.Unpublished and forgotten, the manuscript of The Queen's Treasure, has existed for decades among the Pitcairn family papers. This is its first appearance in any form.
