NOT A PENNY MORE, NOT A PENNY LESS

Stung is how Oxford math scholar Stephen Bradley feels after he's just lost his life savings via a sure-fire North Sea oil stock which has been carefully rigged to fleece the unsuspecting. The mathematician decides to team up with the three other heavy investors in Discovery Oil--a Harley Street doctor, a French art dealer, and a titled farm owner--and ""get even"" by stealing back the million dollars they're out (plus expenses). The quartet comes up with some clever con games of their own with which to enlighten Harvey Metcalfe, the shady financier who masterminded the stock swindle. A sprightly caper worth every penny.
