"That anecdote, one of many in a pacey book by the moonlighting sports historian Duncan Hamilton, illustrates well the absurdities of etiquette in Victorian Britain that made Harry's colourful career possible." -- Brian Schofield * Sunday Times * "Backed by newspaper accounts of the day, Duncan Hamilton's biography is colourful, entertaining and well-researched." * Manchester Evening News * "[Hamilton] tells a lively tale with verve and panache that do justice to his incorrigible subject" * Country Life * "The astonishing true story of the most notorious jewel theif in Victorian London, this has all the hallmarks of the finest detective novel, but has romance at its heart and a love stort that endured to the very end of Harry's life." * Western Morning News *
