The story opens with a mysterious elopement, which Fritz is asked to be a witness to at the wedding. The next day, Fritz meets the father of the bride and he claimed that his daughter is, at times, in a sense, mad. She falls into trances that can last for days. And while in this state met a young man who convinced her to steal 20,000 pounds and meet him in a small town and marry him. Is this story true?

Thank you, KirksVoice for reading this for LibriVox. If I could give separate ratings it would be 5 stars for the reader and 4 stars for the book itself. I have heard many of your narrations, , some science fiction and lately, the wonderful P. G. Wodehouse books. I am glad you read those. Thanks again. Listener who appreciates the effort.

Fritz has wit, confidence, & literally kicks ass. I ended up fond of him. Although at times it was difficult to understand because of the accent given to his character the reader did a wonderful job.
