No matter how often his life is in danger, this gentleman detective never seems to lose his joie de vivre. However affable Albert Campion is, Magersfontein Lugg is the reverse.

Averna, a tiny Dalmatian state of equally small significance, has been rendered a natural harbour and a valuable source of oil by a recent earthquake. It has attracted interest from the British Government and from a bold, bad baron of commerce called Brett Savanake. Averna belongs by right of conquest and subsequent purchase to the once noble, but now depleted, Pontisbright family (now named Fitton). Whoever can trace ownership by showing possession off the Pontisbright crown and its attendant documents will own the place. Campion is employed to find these before Savanake can get his hands on them. With the help of the Fittons, especially Amanda Fitton, a beautiful redhead barely out of her teens, Campion and Lugg, together with assorted companions, set off on a fine old-fashioned treasure hunt.
