I couldn't find a copy of the school story in between this Marlow book and the last so I eventually went ahead and read this. Not the most interesting of the series. The Marlows and Patrick go off into imaginary realms in the style of the young Brontes. The moral of the story is supposed to be that they're all too old to be playig make-believe which seems a curious message for an adult author to be putting across.
Ages since I read the first of this series, and this second never really got going for me. Found it odd, bemusing and not very mystery like.
