"The charm of this comic thriller springs mostly from the frantic gymnastics of its hero, an old-family San Francisco aristocrat, as he conducts a quixotic search for a stolen French painting that may (or may not) prove his blood ties to Louis XVI of France...a polished, entertaining performance with vivid characters and clever plot twists."

Synopsis

Wrongly convicted after a mysterious accident, Edmund Amesbury, the heir of a prominent San Francisco family, makes an escape to prove his innocence. He soon discovers that the conspiracy against him involves a long sought-after painting that might prove his lineage to France’s last king. Betrayed and abandoned by his family and friends, and with the police on his heels, Edmund finds an unlikely ally in a shadowy cat burglar who introduces him to the underworld of forgers and stolen-art dealers.
