Until her cousin, Colin Munro, asked her to look into the matter of one containing a fortune, for his fiancee Aglaia Armitage, left to her by her Greek grandfather. Then Julia learned a great deal. But besides bonds and debentures, old Mr. Thalassides, proved to have left documents of vital interest to the British Secret Service, and to other Powers as well, in the vault with them. When these disappear, the hunt begins ... Ann Bridge brings her characteristic wit, suspense and sense of adventure to the third book in the Julia Probyn series
