To look at, little, unprepossessing Augustus Faynes is an unlikely criminal genius. And yet this unassuming gentleman is a formidable crook - the mastermind of many a subtle art theft. Nearing the end of his career, Faynes has managed to con his way into Pumphrey Abbey, home of kindly millionaire Robert Smith, where he plans one final coup which will enable him and his wife Hetty to retire in style.
But when his plans are threatened, Faynes takes drastic measures which may spell the end for his illicit designs before they have even begun to get underway...
First published in 1936, this is an intriguing and suspenseful crime thriller from the pen of golden age mystery writer Vernon Loder.
