WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY KIRSTEN T. SAXON

Prince's College, Cambridge, is a peaceful and scholarly community, enlivened by Prudence Pinsent, the Master's daughter. Spirited, beautiful, and thoroughly unconventional, Prudence is a remarkable young woman.

One fine morning she sets out for Suffolk to join her cousin Lord Wellende for a few days' hunting. On the way Prudence encounters Captain Studde of the coastguard - who is pursuing a quarry of his own.

Studde is on the trail of a drug smuggling ring that connects Wellende Hall with the cloistered world of Cambridge. It falls to Prudence to unravel the identity of the smugglers - who may be forced to kill, to protect their secret.

This witty and entertaining crime novel has not been republished since the 1930s. This new edition includes an introduction by Kirsten T. Saxton, professor of English at Mills College, California.

While the writing was pleasant, I found this "mystery" pretty much total balderdash. Nothing much happens as the story follows a young woman (daughter of the Master at one of Cambridge's colleges) as she becomes involved in what she thinks is a drug-smuggling operation at a cousin's country manor. There are passages that harken back to the author's great-great aunt which stop the "action" cold for a couple of chapters. It's somewhat disappointing, but I didn't have great expectations anyway. And too much fox-hunting!
