- In this last adventure Bunter triumphs again, much more by luck than judgement and somehow saves Vernon-Smith, the Bounder of the Remove, from a diabolical plot.
- It all begins on the local railway platform when Bunter is set upon by Ponsonby & Co. from Highcliffe School and incarcerated in an empty packing case. Bunter can neither speak nor move but he can listen and soon hears something very confidential - a plot by the Bounder's cousin, Derek Vernon to discredit the Bounder in his father's eyes and have the family fortune pass to Derek.
- When Bunter is finally rescued no one will believe his story but for once events prove him right and Bunter frustrates Derek's evil designs - without meaning to.
