Bones is back in the second story of The Lieutenant Bones series. After a tour of duty overseas, the eccentric character Augustus Tibbetts (known as ’’Bones’’ to his associates) returns to London to embark on civilian life. A mischievous businessman, he seems to have every financial schemer in London coming after him, but somehow he always comes out on top. In a series of loosely connected but consistently hilarious tales and vignettes, Bones inadvertently stumbles into a series of improbable but exciting adventures and too-good-to-be-true business ventures. Humor and romance follow Bones as well, as he makes his way through the underworld of London moneymakers.
