Fay Gretton had worked for James Draycott in his estate management company for only a short time. Then, one day, Draycott didn’t turn up and enquiries lead Fay to the conclusion he had completely disappeared. She consulted The Honourable Richard Rollison (aka ‘ The Toff’), London’s legendary private detective.

So where does he now go to seek a solution to the mystery and can he stay out of danger himself?
