(From the publisher):
When the gangsters come to Surrey, the trouble begins...
From village cricket to... what? The Honourable Richard Rollison, known to the underworld and the public at large as The Toff, is an inquisitive man. When Defoe, an enthusiastic cricketer, elects not to turn up for a game, his suspicions are aroused. A pretty girl on the run, a young man with Mongol blood and a way with automatic pistols, a trail that leads to the East End of London...
The Toff and Jolly, his imperturbable manservant, find themselves investigating a kidnapping, more than one attempted murder, one successful one. This is one of Creasey's fast movers, full of exciting action, with a mystery at the heart of it that only The Toff can solve.
