The Baron Returns
(Writing as Anthony Morton)
John Mannering (aka The Baron) pulled his scarf up so as to hide his face. A casual observer from a window above would probably not even notice him. The finest jewel thief in London was utilising all of his skills to nail a crooked Solicitor. Mannerings friend could be ruined by documents contained in the lawyers strong-room and so he risks all, especially his freedom, to get them back.
