Fred M. White’s hobby is to confuse the reader from the very first pages. The same happens in The Golden Bat, from the very first phrases we learn about a real confident man, Lytton Barle. He was the head of the Secret Squad at New Scotland. His friend, Ray, came to London to find a man who stole $ 40,000 from him. Ray joins the Secret Squad. Together, two comrades are going to make noise and punish those responsible.
