I picked up this book because of the title and the book began well. Two friends, golfer Peter and doctor Jimmy, are chatting in a country house when they hear a thud outside. Rushing to the garden, they find a fatally injured man. The man turns out to be a convict who had escaped from the nearby prison. He mumbles a few words, the most notable being 'dusky night', before dying. Sensing an adventure, Peter and Jimmy set out on finding about 'dusky night'.

As the book progressed, my initial enthusiasm petered out as I realised that this was just a version of a 'boy's adventure' novel with a dying message, a cryptic code, a secret formula, a crystal-gazing-fortune-teller, village fair, carnivals and caravans though to show that it is a novel for adults, the author tags on a crime-passionnel angle too.
