Recognising it as Charles Blunt, a thief he crossed paths with and admired many years before, Littlejohn resolves to solve the case. But where did the body come from? What was it doing in front of a deserted house? And why, after all these years, had Charles Blunt finally come to a sticky end? Looking into the life of Blunt the Gentleman burglar brings Littlejohn into the complex love triangles and debauchery of the filthy rich, and all of the scandal that goes with it.
