Fivepenny Mystery (3)
I'm now over halfway through the carefully plotted Fivepenny Mystery. This is the scene where Brown Hand attempts to kidnap Penny. She is recovering from chicken pox and cannot go into the village with the others when the car runs out of petrol and ends up dropping off in the front seat. When she wakes up, the villain is forcing the car door open. I'm really enjoying this story. Like the Susan stories, the Penny series just gets better and better.
