But when the incompetent gang meet one failure after another, they decide to switch the object of their theft and kidnap the tycoon's beloved daughter instead and whilst the idea sounds a brilliant switch, it's execution will yield them disasters of a great magnitude"--Madman.com.au

Folly to be wise: "Captain Paris is an exasperated army chaplain and entertainments officer of a conscripted battalion.
