Publisher's Summary

While an ugly war with its neighboring realm continues to rage, the insulated members of Ruritania's upper class laugh and dance their way through their superficial lives. Some people, increasingly disillusioned by the pointless conflict, start to consider how the King might be persuaded - or forced - to end it.
Meanwhile, an increasing number of items of great value are going missing from those attending these high society gatherings. At whom will the finger of suspicion point? Who can be trusted? With so many competing, yet intertwined, agendas, what will be the outcome of this looming of vultures?

A lovely story

The lives of the landed gentry in Ruritania seems like an episode from Downton Abbey! I adore the language and the etiquette employed. The gentleman burglar is so endearing, I know I should abhor his behaviour, but I simply couldn't bring myself to dislike anyone so fond of chocolate tiffin! Of course, the exquisite language was enhanced by the narration of Jake Urry - a man who's voice can be likened to liquid chocolate. There doesn't exist a word, story or tale that cannot be turned into a masterpiece by the addition of Mr Urry. I'm thrilled to recommend this tale, it's simply lovely!

Your magnificent chocolate Tiffin.

Delicious in every way, this book of dirty deeds amongst the grandeur of Ruritanian nobility has echos of the gentleman thief books of Raffles and sidekick, Bunny. Gloriously written by Richard Storry, a visual and gastric delight providing a colourful background to the amusing story of thefts and double dealing. There is even an end recipe for the delectable chocolate Tiffin.

Simply to say that it is narrated by Jake Urry should be enough. His excellent narration with just a twinge of the sinister gives this sumptuous and whimsical tale the needed gravitas. Perfectly read, as always, he voices the characters and paces the text perfectly, his reading not disguising the inherent humour.

Good story, definitely fun and definitely recommended.
