Well, MAJ Abel Jones is on another quest to solve another mystery. This quest takes him to A Northern New York town where he is to solve a riddle of Federal Agents who have been tortured to death.
He runs up against a angry public, séances and a ruthless fiend who manipulates a your lady to pose as his daughter.
In the fracas our honorable Major Jones gets hurt while trying to locate the source of these ilicit happenings.
I enjoyed this almost as much as the first book "Faded Coat of Blue" by the same author Owen Parry. However, his first book was written much better.
