AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Much is not as it seems in this tale. Mark Sinclair is sent to a Victorian country township in pursuit of an escaped criminal. Disguised as a Jewish peddler he penetrates the disguises of a woman dressed as a youth and a man as an old woman. The woman is killed by a tree branch whilst attempting to inform on her accomplices and Sinclair captures one of the criminals, the other escaping Avarice for jewellery and an old Scotsman's miserliness play a part.
