A Prince of SwindlersPaperback - 2015
"The British Viceroy first meets Simon Carne while traveling in the Indian countryside. Charmed, he invites the reclusive hunchbacked scholar to London for a season of high society, little suspecting that his guest is actually an adventurer and master of disguise. Carne--aided by his loyal butler, Belton--embarks on a crime spree, stealing from London's richest citizens and then making fools of them by posing as a detective investigating the thefts." -- from publisher's description.
