Within a few minutes of each other, two puzzling yet unconnected cases are presented to The Honourable Richard Rollison (aka 'The Toff?), with requests for help. The beautiful Isabel Cole?s fiancée is accused of murder and she needs to save him from what seems an unjust fate, whilst Cedric Dwight is being pursued by a gang of murderous hoodlums. Both are urgent and complex cases and for a moment it seems that 'The Toff? will have to choose between them. There is absolutely no connection between the cases and yet ?.
