When we're first introduced to young James, he's just started boarding school at Eton in the 1930s. His first adventure is set in the Highlands of Scotland, where James spends a holiday at a remote castle. Mysterious things start to happen, someone has disappeared; then James discovers that the dark waters around the castle contain a sinister secret, and he becomes aware that a very dangerous mind is at work.
