Salute the Toff
Fay Gretton had worked for James Draycott in his estate management company for only a short time. Then, one day, Draycott didnt turn up and enquiries lead Fay to the conclusion he had completely disappeared. She consulted The Honourable Richard Rollison (aka The Toff), Londons legendary private detective. It was not long before The Toff found himself in conflict with a notorious underworld gang who had no hesitation in disposing of awkward enquirers. So where does he now go to seek a solution to the mystery and can he stay out of danger himself?
