The forbears of Sir John Jory, of New Hall, would seem to have committed several foul acts, including tomb-robbery and murder. Old Hall, the family's former residence, is now a University. Biographer Colin Clout, engaged to write an account of one of Jory's ancestors, gets caught up in a frenzied treasure hunt as rival interests and rival claimants probe the past and naked greed comes to the fore.

Excellent story line (as always with Michael Innes) slightly spoilt by mispronunciation of several (fairly common) words by the narrator and narration not quite up to the standards set by Matt Addis
