This time the reader is thrilled with the story of Sir Marmaduke Vane-Temperly, who, a weary man of the world, goes forth to seek his vanished youth. Of the many adventures that befall him, a mysterious murder, is but one. Again the author, with a masterful hand, recreates a fascinating period when bucks and dandies took a dilettante interest in bruisers, and footpads infested the highways and hedges of old England. It is a romance which, because of its atmosphere, stirring action and unique characters, will be read unflaggingly to the end. [Suggest a different description.]

Jeffery Farnol (10 February 1878 – 9 August 1952) was a British writer since 1907 until his death, known for writing more than 40 romance novels, some formulaic and set in the Georgian Era or English Regency period, and swashbucklers, he with Georgette Heyer founded the Regency romantic genre.

He published his first romance novel My Lady Caprice in 1907. The success of his early novels led Farnol to become a professional writer. He produced around 40 novels and volumes of stories, and some non-fiction and children's books. His last book was completed by his second wife Phyllis.

Two of his early books, The Amateur Gentleman and The Broad Highway, have been issued in a version edited by romance novelist Barbara Cartland. The Amateur Gentleman was adapted for British film in 1920 and 1936, American film in 1926.--Wikipedia.
