It’s late Autumn, 1950. Robert Lynnford, star crime-reporter for The London Herald, is alerted to the theft of an extremely valuable exhibit from the Queen’s Fine Art Museum in London - the Elephant’s Sapphire, a much-coveted historic heirloom from Nepal which has been held by the museum since the 1880s.
A desperate curator asks Lynnford to recover the jewel before knowledge of its loss becomes public and the international reputation of the museum is damaged. A constitutional crisis in Nepal and the Prime Minister’s imminent visit to London for urgent talks with the British government add a diplomatic imperative to Lynnford’s task.
Murder, double-dealing, and betrayal in London’s Docklands and world of fine art surround the sapphire’s disappearance from the museum, and Lynnford needs all the help he can muster to track it down. When rival gangs lock onto the hunt, the search becomes a deadly race that will lead him around Britain and across the Channel, with only his reporter’s instincts to protect him. And his friends!
THE ELEPHANT’S SAPPHIRE is a stand-alone story within a detective mystery series based on the investigations of Robert Lynnford. Ideal for fans of the more retro-detective crime, this story will take you back to the past where a mystery was solved with the mind instead of technology.
