ABOUT THIS BOOK

When their father is falsely accused of selling national secrets and imprisoned, Bobbie,
Peter and Phyllis move with their mother from their comfortable city home to a
tiny cottage in the countryside, next to the railway station. Soon the children settle
in comfortably, befriending everyone, including an old gentleman who waves at
them from the 9.15 each day. But the mystery of their father’s disappearance looms
large over them. Where is Father? And how does the old gentleman hold the key to
the mystery?
