You Can’t Fool Fiona

Candle

Terry Gibson wasn’t the brightest but then he didn’t need to be. His dad had been one of the most successful thieves of his generation, specializing in National Trust owned stately homes (he was a Life Member and thought it would be disloyal to go elsewhere) and was very rich.

So Terry just hung around doing very little, lived at home, had the use of the family cars and ate off the silver plate.

His big mistake was taking some Regency candlesticks for evaluation at an Antiques Roadshow event at Matley Hall.

The butler recognised them. The police were called.
