Harvey Metcalfe is making his money the old-fashioned way: he swindles it out of people. It has served him well all his life - and being very careful about it, he has reached a comfortable, settled middle age.

The latest victims of one of his stock market schemes are an Oxford don, a doctor, an art dealer and a lord. They decide to get even and hatch an ingenious plan to relieve Harvey of the money he took from them, not a penny more, not a penny less. The next time Harvey vacations in Europe, the foursome is ready.

This is a very enjoyable read - there are a few occasions when the novel dates itself to the Seventies, but that is easily overlooked. Nice twist at the end, too. Jeffrey Archer is great!

(Unfortunately, my copy arrived with a water-damaged corner, which I only saw after I already gave credit to the sender, so I will not be posting it.)

This is one of the cleverest and most fun books I've read in ages. The separate victims of major stock fraud get together to get their money back by whatever means necessary. They hope to defraud the scamster of the exact amounts that were taken from them--not a penny more, not a penny less. Wonderful story.
