"When David Euart had pawned his watch and paid off his landlady, he suddenly heard something to his advantage. A legacy was left him by a friend of his father, and he found himself co-heir with a charming girl. While travelling to his new estate in the Lakeland hills, a stranger in the railway carriage persuaded him to take charge of a wallet for him. On his way to an hotel that night he was set upon and stunned. A few days later he found the body of the murdered stranger in a desolate place known as Hell Pool. Here are enough events to arouse the curiosity of all normal people. Behind all these mysteries of sudden fortune, robbery and murder, lurks that enigmatic villain, "The Man with the Twisted Face," and his identity is well concealed until the penultimate chapter.
