Mystery on the Marsh is an adventure story set in the 1920s. Ned runs away from his home in the East End of London when his stepfather threatens to get rid of his beloved old dog.

For some months he survives by doing odd jobs for people, and working at the weekends in the cafe where the owner, Bessie Brown, is kind to him.
