The five meet up at Kirrin Station and find Aunt Fanny and Uncle Quentin are going to Spain on holiday, leaving the five at home with their cook, Joanna. On the beach they meet a gypsy girl called Jo. After the house is burgled, George is kidnapped, and Jo comes with a card telling them to leave some documents to exchange for George. The wrong papers were left, and George is not released. After a wild goose chase round the countryside, Jo leads them to the cliff-top house where George was captive in the tower. Jo climbed up the ivy and swapped places with George. She then finds a doped Timmy, with her cousins' help. Thinking that the police were on to them, the kidnappers tried to escape, but their helicopter crashed. The Five made a quick getaway and called the police.
The novel was adapted as a 2014 German film production, Fünf Freunde 3.
