    Expect the unexpected.

    This is Sir Percy Blakeney at his best! Caught between a rock and a hard place, our hero must rely on his wits, the loyalty (already tested) of his followers, and of course...chance. A wonderfully detailed adventure that is delightfully difficult to put down. (Forget about the laundry!)
