From the cover: “A mysterious couple, Mr. and Mrs. Waterston, come to Melvick claiming that Kindrachai House really belongs to them. Their claim is unfortunately proved to be well-founded, much to everyone’s distress, since the Waterstons intend to build up a holiday resort in the area, using Kindrachill House as their base. But Ian, Sovra and Cathie are determined that they shall not succeed. While they are scheming to outwit the Waterstons, they become involved in the mystery of Alexander’s lost treasure, and as a result of this, the long-held secret of Esau’s pit is at last revealed.”
