Is telepathy real? The Whistler hints that it is. Herbert is a student of extra sensory perception, and receives a mental flash from an author, and specialist in the topic, Thomas Banning. Going to find Thomas, Herbert goes to see if his publishing company can print his unfinished manuscript. But he finds there is none. Is Thomas lying for some reason?
Unable to rest, Herbert expects another mental flash, while his girlfriend, Andrea, spends her own sleepless night. The publisher confirms that a manuscript on mind over matter should be half done. In seeking the answers he needs, Herbert checks with the banker. Is there some kind of foul play with Thomas brother coming to town?
Back at the Banning estate, Herbert is prepared for the worst, but finds Thomas insisting there is no book. Is Herbert just being too nosy and pushy? Allowed to stay over in the Banning estate, Herbert and Andrea ponder the elements in the mystery. Will telepathic messages lead Herbert to the manuscript? Secrets are discovered. What’s the motive behind holding Thomas captive, and torturing him?
The puzzle pieces to the mystery is revealed, but the Whistler has one more secret that’s sure to bring justice.
Note: Frank Nelson is Herbert.
