Product details

‘I’m taking a revolver to Thrackley. You never know with blokes like Carson. I hate these harmless, potty people – they’re always up to something.’

The house is gloomy and forbidding but the party is warm and hospitable – except for the presence of Jacobson, the sinister butler. The other guests are wealthy people draped in jewels; Jim cannot imagine why he belongs in such company.

After a weekend of adventure – with attempted robbery and a vanishing guest – secrets come to light and Jim unravels a mystery from his past.
