A series of short stories about Gentleman Criminal and Master of Disguise Peter Ruff.

In Part 1, Ruff devotes himself to embarrassing a police detective who caused him some problems and stole his woman.

Part 2 turns from crime to politics and international intrigue as Peter joins a secret society to battle the wily German spy, Bernadine.

Light hearted with a bit of romance along with the action and fancy pants English dialogue. Worth reading.
