Nancy investigates a small ship cottage at the Chatham estate and discovers a connection between the mysterious occurrences at the cottage and an island where a lost treasure is said to be buried.

The mystery becomes dangerous when an assailant hears about the treasure and is determined to push Nancy off the trail.
