This is Creasey's 18th title in the Toff series. While the Honorable Richard Rollison is not so well known as Creasey's Inspector West, he is a pleasant throwback to the era of the gentleman detective. He is particularly good with damsels in distress, and this time it's Gillian Selby, surrounded by blackguards, who wants to get the family farm out of the girl. Kidnapping, extortion, gunplay, and then comes the ubiquitous gent to the rescue. On a par with the American Saint.
