"To the four Richleigh children, brought up in a most proper Victorian household, their first visit to Tantamount, the ancestral castle built on the Cornish coast by their great-great-great-grandfather held all the promise of longed-for adventure. Accompanied by a governess and a tutor, who were to look after them while their parents were on a sea voyage, the children arrived at Tantamount only to discover that it had been shamefully neglected for many years and that it harbored some unhappy secret. An aura of evil hung about the crumbling castle - and when the two chaperones abandoned them, the Richleighs were left in a state of freedom and of helplessness they had never before known. Through their friendship with Nancy and Dick, two children who lived in a nearby cottage, the four Richleighs learned to provide for themselves and to revel in their unfettered existence. It was through Nancy and Dick, too, that they slowly learned Tantamount's dark secret and the reason it was held in such dread by those who lived within its shadow."
