JOHN ADDISON, the millionaire, was savagely attacked in his library, and very nearly murdered. Yet on his recovery he announced that there had been no assailant—that he had fallen from a high library ladder and crashed on to a safe. He nevertheless took elaborate precautions against further intruders; it seemed that he expected a second attack. And the second attack came. The sounds of the struggle were heard through the locked doors of the library. But when the doors were burst open both attacker and attacked had vanished. How Anthony Trent penetrated the secret and restored the millionaire to his wife and daughter, makes one of the most exciting experiences which have yet fallen to the lot of the great criminologist.
