Bones In London ~~ Edgar Wallace


Description
Here we are shown Bones as a business man. He is prepared to finance anything-anything His indiscretions serve him well, for although all the financial cut-throats in the City centre are on his trail, they achieve nothing but his further enrichment. There is a chuckle in every chapter, even in those devoted to his courting. Good business stories are so rare that the reader can't afford to miss this. He rose, solemnly shook hands, sat down again and coughed. Then he took up the ivory paper-knife to chew, coughed again as he detected the lapse, and put it down with a bang. "I thought I'd like to come along and see you, Mr. Tibbetts," said Fred in his gentle voice; "we are so to speak, associated in business." "Indeed?" said Bones. "In-deed?" "You see, Mr. Tibbetts," Fred went on, with a sad smile, "your lamented uncle, before he went out of business, sold us his ships. He died a month later." He sighed and Bones sighed. "Your uncle was a great man, Mr. Tibbetts," he said, "one of the greatest business men in this little city. What a man " "Ah " said Bones, shaking his head mournfully. Full Synopsis
