Judge Lobbett has found the answer to the identity of the criminal mastermind behind the sinister gang. The gang has tried to kill him four times so far and now he needs help to stay alive and catch the mastermind. He enlists the amateur sleuth Albert Campion to do this.

Though this was first published in the 1930's that does not matter as what was current then is historical fiction to us now. We listened to this as an audio book and it passed away several happy hours of travel, leading to a heated discussion towards the end as to who was actually “Mr Sinister”.
