Book Description:
Another full-length mystery story featuring Hamilton Cleek, whom we met first in Cleek: The Man of the Forty Faces. This time, Cleek investigates the sinister disappearance of people and the mysterious appearance of flames at night in the desolate Fens, and his friend Superintendent Narkom of Scotland Yard tries to solve some tricky cases of bank robberies in London.

While not quite up to the standard we have come to expect from previous Cleek adventures, it is still quite a jolly romp, and Cleek's cockney sidekick Dollops is always good fun.

Ruth Golding does a wonderful narration for this good story, not as clever as previous stories but enjoyable never the less.

Ruth's telling of the tale is very good though I did not find the story itself as compelling as the first Whilst I realise this is from a different era with different attitudes, the chap who everyone loved I found to be most obnoxious. Still a couple of red herrings thrown in to keep it interesting.

Different from Cleek: man of the forty faces in which the majority of the book is told from the person who needed Cleek's services. The last quarter of the book is Cleek and his cleverness. Another win for this series :-)
