bably rewards for his capture which, in the aggregate, offered immense inducement to deliver Anthony Trent to justice. How was Trent to know that Sutton the adjutant was financially secure enough to make the sacrifice? Undoubtedly he had seen Sutton and made the desperate leap.

Sutton determined to safeguard his interests. The baggage for instance, that should not be searched. There might be in it evidence as damaging as that which the brothers of Joseph put into the younger's sack. It would be far better to see the captain and make a friend of him. Why had not Trent been a better reader of character and recognized that in Captain Sutton he had a friend?

Sutton did not know that long ago Trent had seen that in the rich lawyer there was one whom he need not fear. Few were more skilled than the master criminal in the reading of those signs by which men reveal for a second or so the depths of their natures.

Anthony Trent had not jumped from the rails of the big ship because he had seen Sutto

If you liked The Young Visiters, you'll love this.

A self-styled "master criminal" from the U.S. loses his heart to the high-born sister of the ne'er-do-well who saves his life in WWI combat, which leads to Balkan intrigue in a medieval castle with the political future of Europe at stake.

Okay, but written in the style of Daisy Ashford, age 9.

Seconding the fun read vote. This is the period when PG Wodehouse got started, so the words read very like his stuff except THIS writer is serious about it. A splash of post WWI politics, man gone wrong redeemed by love of a decent (titled) woman, etc. A few plot holes, but it's all about adventure and romance, so you'll get past those OK. The title is not really accurate but the plot is fun to follow.
