Monhegan Island, Maine
Wednesday, June 04, 1924

The investigators have arrived on tiny Monhegan Island and met their host and his two rather unusual wards. But after a quick browse of the books in their host's reading room they begin to believe that all is not quite as it seems. Dinner is about to be served, and the team has already been distracted from their search for young Sara.

Confusion reigns as the investigators struggle to keep themselves focused on the search for poor, innocent Sara while being drawn further in to the mystery.

A few pleasant months have passed for our friends, and the games of the VIII Olympiad are in full swing, when Mr. Ballentine receives a phone call and a job offer. It seems that a young girl has gone missing on Monhegan Island in Maine, and the police are unable - or unwilling - to look into her disappearance.

The friends assemble and travel to Maine, where they find out that Monhegan Island is not the tourist haven one would expect. Far from it, something is very wrong on the small, remote island.
