An adventure serial in six episodes by Donald Wilson.
Starring William Franklyn, Lana Morris, Rona Anderson, Moray Watson, Ewan Roberts

Just before General Campbell's memoirs were due to be published, not only part of the manuscript but the General himself suddenly disappeared, to the consternation of his daughter Alison and the surprise of Roger Kenyon.
Meanwhile the General's secretary, Isobel Gilmour, has also left London, and the last link with the missing author was broken, until the Rev. Murdo Aitcheson arrived out of the blue to warn Alison that her father was in Scotland on very private business, and that Isobel was secretly on her way to join him.
