"Leslie Farlan was intrigued by her wealthy new employers, Curt and Cleo VanCampen. She was to accompany then and some friends and a young, handsome fellow employee, Ron Calvert, to the Cornish coast of England and act as nurse-companion to Cleo, a semi-invalid. What she had not been told was the purpose of the trip - to look for a treasure supposedly buried during World War II by the Nazis. . . Her first premonition of danger came when she spied the craggy, desolate coast. The wind-swept isolation reminded her of a recurring nightmare she had had from childhood. And almost immediately fantasy invaded reality when the body of a man was discovered awash in the sea. At the grisly sight Lesley's mounting hysteria was calmed only by the steadying arm of Ron Calvert. The ensuing treasure hunt was carried out against a background of murder, suspicion, greed, and a ravaging gale that relentlessly tormented the coast."; 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall
