Don't get mean, get even.... One million dollars - that's what Harvey Metcalfe, lifelong king of shady deals, has pulled off with empty promises of an oil bonanza and instant riches. Overnight, four men - the heir to an earldom, a Harley Street doctor, a Bond Street art dealer and an Oxford don - find themselves penniless. But this time Harvey has swindled the wrong men. They band together and shadow him from the casinos of Monte Carlo to the high-stakes windows at Ascot and the hallowed lawns of Oxford. Their plan is simple: to sting the crook for exactly what they lost - not a penny more, not a penny less.

"Archer is terrific and meets the reader's ultimate tests - to want to turn the page, to want to know what happens next"
Took a little while to get into it, but once you're there got don't want it to finish 😃
"A thoroughly good read."
A really good gripping story. I enjoyed as much as I did the first time I read it in the mid 70s. It's one of those"old-fashioned" stories with a really bad baddie. I loved the twist in the tale at the end, too.
The last bit! But I won't spoil it!
"Good story. Narrated very well"
The story was good and I really enoyed the banter between the main four characters.
This must be one of the best Jeffrey Archer books...enjoyed every minute of it. I wanted it to end, but didn't, if you know what I mean.
Wanted to know what happened ! Now I have to find another excellent book!
