  • Miss Maud Culver staffed the pigeonry with boys who had been in trouble and were now supposed to be going straight. Though the neighbours looked disapprovingly at the boys and the young Marlows called them The Thuggery, there was nothing definite against them until Patrick Merrick and Peter Marlow found a dead pigeon which was carrying powder in a sealed capsule. Then the reaction of The Thuggery left them in no doubt that they had stumbled on a case of drug-smuggling.
