Behind the Crimson Blind

(1952)
(Book 21 in the Sir Henry Merrivale series)
A novel by

 
 
Before Maureen Holmes, a young receptionist from New York, is even off the plane to enjoy a fortnight's holiday in Tangier, she has been approached by the ebullient and lecherous - but ever likeable - Sir Henry Merrivale (the old reprobate, H.M.). Persuaded to pose as his secretary, Maureen finds herself being drawn into the search for the cunning robber, 'Iron Chest' - so called because he always carried such an object with him on his forays. But at the scene of every crime the thief and his distinctive trademark have a disconcerting habit of disappearing into thin air. 'Iron Chest' is a slippery customer - baffling the European police - but no one can fool the splendidly flamboyant H.M. for long.
