When Ellen's niece Lucy comes to stay with her she catches Martin's eye but there is always The Wall Between.
Cornelia Van Gorder finally makes an appearance in this story that is remarkably similar to The Circular Staircase. There is the bank failure, Jack Bailey posing as a gardener, The country house, the secret room, ect. The list goes on and on.
