About this title

Synopsis:

Together, London tour guide Horace Bunbury and con man Thomas O'Leary scheme to pull off a heist involving the sale of the Albert Memorial to a rich Texan for five million dollars, until hired hit men outmatch the devious duo

From Publishers Weekly:

Butterworth (A Virgin on the Rocks begins this lighthearted caper quickly and keeps it spinning right to its neat end. In a London flophouse, Horace Bunbury, young ex-alcoholic and impoverished Oxonian, meets Capt. Thomas O'Leary, also young and poor and late of the Irish Guards. When Bunbury mentions that Texas billionaire George Sawtry wants to buy the Albert Memorial for $5 million, O'Leary's active brain kicks into high. Soon the Irishman has set up a couple of funding scams that enable him and Bunbury to move on to the major con-game. The Texan "wins" a hilarious auction and assigns our heroes to dismantle the ugly monument for shipping to the Lone Star state as a wedding present for the newest Mrs. Sawtry. Complications arise when the lady's legal husband appears and when a top London crook leaves jail bent on killing O'Leary to avenge an earlier scam. After many plot turns and much tearing around, the book climaxes with a car chase cum shootout. Most of the characters are stereotypes, but readers will enjoy this frothy charmer anyway.
