Norman Conquest in a new role. Mr. Berkeley Gray's dashing hero, inveterate trouble-seeker and sworn enemy of the criminal classes, takes a job in a London store. His department is Watches and Clocks, and Norman is a super-salesman. But his eye is not on the clocks but on the jewels, the fabulous precious stones that stud the throne of Massana, now on special exhibition at the store. And of course jewels of such value attract some curious customersójust the sort that were likely to engage the attention of the redoubtable Norman. Berkeley Gray's exciting new thriller moves at breathless pace from one highly dramatic situation to another, enlivened always with that breezy humour typical of a Norman Conquest story.

Shows a little wear but still looks nice - great jacket artwork and a bargain !
