In this age of scoundrels and scumbags, Lucinda is the most elegant and sophisticated of all the international jewel thieves. Her great-grandmother had learnt the trade under the tutelage of Prince Rupert de Anzio as he and his entourage cut a swathe through the castles and stately homes of late nineteenth century Europe, and her knowledge and skills have been handed down through the generations and honed to perfection to accommodate changing technologies.
Over the decades, anything from a galloping horse to a private jet would serve as a means of getaway.
Lucinda feels that newly-liberated Faberge Eggs warrant the dignity and old-fashioned luxury of rail.
