Fiction, Mystery

Vicky Bliss has an amazing tendency to get in over her head. In this case, tracking down a forgery causes her to break in to a shop, which leads to her being recognized later by its proprietor, which leads to her tracking down a reclusive Count with an art collection, which leads to moving statuary in the garden...

You get the idea. But most notable in this chain of events is the introduction of "Sir John Smythe", a character we have met elsewhere (sharp-eyed readers will catch the references to his past that proves who he is) and who is the perfect man for prickly Vicky. If he were only honest, that is, since he seems to be a crook of the highest order...
