    When the Dowager Duchess of Sutherland's jewels were stolen from her train carriage en route to Paris in 1898, the theft became one of the most talked-about crimes of the day; but along with the jewels, the perpetrator had disappeared without trace - as he had many times before. This book tells the story of the amazingly accomplished jewel thief whose career lasted from 1876 to 1923, and whose final mistake was to let love cloud his judgement.
