  • Nineteenth in The Famous Five series
  • Julian, Dick and Anne are coming to Kirrin to stay for a couple of weeks, but are beaten by Quentin's colleague Professor Hayling and his son Tinker on their way. There isn't enough room at Kirrin Cottage for everybody to stay, so Tinker suggests he and the Five go to his lighthouse at Demon's Rocks up the coast. On arrival at the lighthouse, they settle in, and meet the local character Jeremiah Boogle, introduced to the Five by a local taxi driver Jackson, who tells them stories of olden time smuggling which went on in the area. He tells them about the three Wreckers who wrecked ships by luring them towards the Demon's Rocks deliberately and smuggled the wealth out of them.
