When Dr. Orestes Preson, distinguished and scholarly mammalogist, found that someone was inserting classified newspaper advertisements in his name, requesting candidates for various unlikely jobs to appear for interviews, he called in the police. They weren't much interested. Their interest became lively when Dr. Preson's sister was discovered drugged in his apartment, and acute when a definite murder attempt was made.
Pam and Jerry North come into the picture since Jerry is Dr. Preson's publisher, a happy publisher, too, for the learned Curator of Fossil Mammals has the touch that converts research into bestsellers. Soon they are very much involved in some strange doings among the cases of ancient bones in the Bradley Institute of Paleontology.
Sergeant Aloysius Mullins and Captain Bill Weigand assist the Norths as they get into full swing in their sixteenth mystery. In a setting reminiscent of cave man days, a strange game of hide- and-seek is played out. The climax is a wild chase in which Pam emerges the heroine.
Pam and Jerry North have given pleasure to hundreds of thousands of mystery fans. Their latest adventures furnish another example of why the Lockridges, through the years, have attracted so large a following.
