The Treasure of Sir Thomas Conway

Burl Barer has written a short story that is exclusively for sale on Amazon.com entitled, The Treasure of Sir Thomas Conway. It is priced at only 49 cents, and well worth the small investment!

This story is a very clever satire written in a Saintly manner by the noted author of a number of books on The Saint. It is a classic caper with a twist at the end, with its roots firmly entrenched in The Falcon, Raffles, The Saint, and the other gentleman thieves. Watch for Burl's classic touches with regards to the title, the main character's name, and others.

Burl Barer Speaks About The Treasure of Sir Thomas Conway:
I've always held affection for the classic gentleman crooks featured in motion pictures produced in the 1930's and 1940s by RKO. I also favor the once-popular literary form known as the novelette. In “The Treasure of Sir Thomas Conway,” our hero's name, Falcon Arcaio, sets the satirical tone for this modern day reworking of an old fashioned recipe for adventure.

Gee, I'd love to read this one, but Amazon refuses to sell it to me because I live in Australia. Can't work that one out.
