"It was to be a quiet day, dignified and ceremonious, a day suitable for a former Scotland Yard chief to begin work at Quinns, treasure house of priceless antiques owned by John Mannering, erstwhile jewel thief extraordinaire known as the Baron. But before the day is over, ex-superintendent William Bristow wonders if he has ever left the Yard. Stolen jewels and a visit from the Black Knight, an ex-convict seeking revenge on the two men who helped put him away, launch Bristow and Mannering into a case that proves a formidable challenge to their abilities-and their friendship."; Ex-Library; 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall
