BLOTTO, TWINKS AND THE MAHARAJAH'S JEWEL

SIMON BRETT    Book Number: 90908    Product format: Hardback

Anyone for cricket and a spot of burglary? An idle conversation on the merits of the glorious game with an old Etonian chum is just the excuse Blotto needs to put himself forward for a cricket tour to foreign climes. So begins the next adventure for our intrepid duo Blotto and Twinks bound for India on a steamer full of young woman desperate to marry well there - only once having encountered the dashing Blotto, a lot of them fancy the idea of getting married before they reach their destination. Unbeknownst to the siblings, also on the ship is the international jewel thief Monsier le Vicomte Xavier Douce, passing himself off as one of Blotto's cricketing entourage. His real mission though is to steal the diamond which adorns the turban the Maharajah of Koorbleimee. The Dowager Duchess has no problems in letting her two children go to the subcontinent since having her beautiful daughter Twinks married off to a massively rich Maharaja offers the Dowager Duchess the prospect of a permanent solution to the cash-draining maintenance of the Tawcester Towers' plumbing. Another good dollop of hair-raising adventure from the aristocratic sleuthing duo. 232pp.
