'Donald MacKenzie is a born storyteller' Guardian
When John Raven is somehow connected to the case of a criminal abortion that ended in death he finds himself embroiled with his old nemesis, former Chief Superintendent Drake of Scotland Yard. But what Drake doesn't realise is the death is only incidental to the plan for a million-dollar heist.
Soon Raven is involved in rescuing a damsel in distress, saving his own skin, preventing a bank robbery and foiling the relentless machinations of his old enemy.
