A young woman, unconscious and near to drowning, rescued from the muddy waters of London's river 'Thames—an impetuous young man who, by quarelling with his adopted father and his best friend, nearly ruins his life—the disappearance of one of two sisters whose guardians employ a bodyguard of Italian thugs—the mysteries of the handsome "Bet" who can handle a boat like a man—and Jasper Shrig, the famous Bow Street runner, who despite "windictiveness" uncovers a conspiracy of intended murder and embezzlement; around these characters Jeffery Farnol has woven a story of love and hate, of mystery changed to happiness, of intrigue foiled and mystery uncovered, and through the whole pattern like a wide silver thread runs the 'Thames, for on and around it, and sometimes in it, the action of this very human story takes place.

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.
