A little humorous and very fascinating, I've added this book and its sequel to my favorites list.If you like gentlemen crook stories this one is worth your time.
Interesting, amusing and clever adventures of a gentleman thief.
He is somewhat incredibly bodily and mentally apt, but he also encounteres
all possible obstacles and unforseen difficulties, so following his
exploits keeps your attention.
The author has another rare virtue, at least I see it as one: he never tells twice the same thing, he never repeats anything that has been already explained, except obviously when he refers to some circunstance that was mentioned many pages before, so the narrative maintains the tension and suspense.
There are also a good sense of humour, noble feelings, well defined and
somewhat grotesque characters, attractive luxury settings and, thank God!, no romance.
Highly enjoyable page-turner.
An episodic novel describing the capers of a newsman turned crime writer turned gentleman thief. While his exploits are sometimes ingenious, on the whole, they're not very interesting.
