Sylvia Thorpe is one of Britain's most popular novelists. Deborah Chantrey had led a sheltered, restricted life in Bath--until her scholarly father died. He left no will, so the young heiress became the ward of her step-uncle, Lucius Darrell, a distant relation living on the edge of the Essex marshes. Deborah soon found much at Mullion Hall to frighten and perplex her. For why was the Hall shunned and feared by the whole neighbourhood? What strange bond existed between old Lucius and his three, ill-assorted nephews living at Mullion? In desperation, Deborah found herself turning to one of them for help--to Rupert, the quick-tempered young giant, knows as 'Black' Darrell . . .
