Never marry for money, but don't scorn it if it's there. Lousy advice for a man. No one charged a higher rate of interest than a wealthy wife. Having turned his back on a life of crime, Dick Frayne had married Portia for her money, but discovered too late that she was attracted to him for even less romantic reasons. Had unhappiness been too high a price to pay for wealth?
Meanwhile, Esme Lynch may have to combat his fear of snakes and his hatred of monkeys, but his prize is undoubtedly worth it the largest ever recorded red diamond. Priceless. All he has to do is get his hands on it.
Almost a cautionary tale for those who will go to any lengths to line their pockets, Looking-Glass Justice is an ingenious tale of deception, love and complicated death.
