"A solitary climber fell to his death from a mountain in Slovakia. Accident, said the local police, the British authorities. But - hadn't the dead man, an official of a highly secret research institute, worked on the case of a certain renegade scientist? And hadn't that scientist been born a Slovak? The attache from Prague said: 'Murder!' And he was indiscreet enough to say it to young Tossa Barber, the victim's step-daughter.
"Tossa felt bound to see justice done. She diverted a student holiday tour into the wild and lovely Tatra Mountains to investigate, and there a second violent death brought her into head-on collision with the Slovak police, and put her own life in peril.
"Luckily for Tossa, one of her companions was Dominic Felse, who had the obstinate deviotion to justice proper to a policeman's son - not to mention his growing devotion to Tossa herself. It was Dominic who provoked the crisis that brought the elusive piper down from his mountains at last - and set in motion the final avalanche!"; Ex-Library; 7" - 9" Tall
