AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Sam Thompson has little regard for anyone's welfare but his own, and happily exploits people's affections and trust to achieve his ends. Eventually he goes too far and the law catches up with him. However, luck is on his side and he is acquitted for lack of evidence, but this doesn't stop one of his long-suffering girlfriends from meting out justice with a whip.
