The Minerva Club might look like any other London gentlemen's club but behind its respectable and discreet facade, some of the most ambitious schemes for heists, money-making and evasion of the law are being worked out. It's an exclusive club for criminals. Entry qualification: members must have served a prison sentence of two years minimum. Though the club's criminal ventures don't always go as planned... From trying to break into an old prison cell and stealing a stash of jewels hidden during a previous incarceration, love getting in the way during a hideout from the police, a cleverly planned break-in being interrupted by an unexpected guest, to figuring out where to steal a last-minute wedding cake the club's amiable criminals somehow always achieve their goal in the most surprising ways. This collection of five short stories follows the Minerva Club's (mis)adventures and evokes the very best of humorous classic crime fiction. AUTHOR: Victor Canning was a prolific writer throughout his career, which began young: he had sold several short stories by the age of nineteen and his first novel, Mr Finchley Discovers His England (1934) was published when he was twenty-three. It proved to be a runaway bestseller. Canning also wrote for children: his trilogy The Runaways was adapted for US children's television. Canning's later thrillers were darker and more complex than his earlier work and received further critical acclaim.
