Barnes Place – the house, fascinated everyone who saw it. However, his host, Ralph Enderby, didn’t care much about him and saw the house as a week-end office where he entertained his friends and weaved those business schemes which had made his name a byword amongst the City men who knew. One evening Enderby, as always was not at home. This took advantage of an attacker who tried to steal something from the safe. It turned out that it was a girl who was unhappy with the frauds of Ralph Enderby and in the safe was evidence that he wanted to ruin the life of a young woman.
