What does a young actress do when an old friend asks her for a 'little favor?' If the old friend is a young man of highly questionable morals, whose mentor is a fictional character named 'The Saint,' the young woman should think twice before doing anything to help him.
When Betty Ruth Jordan is abducted from Heathrow Airport by just such an old friend, she knows it means trouble! Trouble not only for her, but for anyone involved with Simon Talbot-Lago, an Englishman determined to earn a reputation for daring exploits. Nonetheless, Betty Ruth's personal curse of insatiable curiosity leads her to sample the danger she may encounter at Malvern Manor, the ancestral home of the Earl of Malvern.
A weekend in the English countryside sounds relatively safe, but Malvern Manor has a dangerous house guest: Abdul al Akbar and his retinue of ominous looking men.
Betty Ruth's friend Simon is ostensibly returning a painting stolen from Malvern Manor, but she soon learns that there is more than meets the eye going on in The Mysterious Affairs at Malvern Link: A Jordan-Hudson Novel.
