Zusammenfassung

A Prince of Swindlers is the story of one intelligent, fearless, and clever scoundrel who keeps an entire city in terror. He is an ingenious thief and a master of disguise who has conned all of London. The thief executes a series of plans that involve him stealing a diamond necklace, arranging the theft of a horse, stealing some wedding gifts, misleading the profits of a charity campaign, and swimming off with a visiting royal's most refined gold plate. He uses several schemes to fool the English upper class and comes away with millions. It's a story of how an unexpected encounter between a conman and a British diplomat led to a series of adventures. It's interesting and fun to read how he plans out his complex plans and always manages to execute them.

The gentleman thief is a fascinating character who often recaps his plans to the reader in dialogue. This gave him a humorous villain quality that adds to the story's charm. Much of the humor depicts his personality wonderfully. It's a mind-blowing story that will meet any reader's need for thrills.
