about

Meet the Honourable Thadeus Burke, son of a lord launching his career running an insurance business at Lloyd's of London. Yet, if Thadeus Burke hoped to find security and a quiet life there, he could not have been more mistaken. For where the stakes are high the cunning is low. The underworld finds its way into underwriting, and Thadeus finds himself drawn into the riddles and rewards of fighting crime. Mystery by mystery Thadeus, his irrepressible sister Freddie and the CID's Inspector Jackson follow cases from the world of horse racing to the world of jazz, from the early days of British fascism to the latest jinks in the lesbian demimonde, from arsenic in stately homes to shootouts in abandoned aerodromes. Written with an eye for historical detail and an understanding of hoods and horseflesh, The Adventures of Thadeus Burke carries the reader into the heart of life in Britain's last elegant decade, the nineteentwenties.
