Synopsis: The Baron, or Blue Mask.  A gentleman crook.

John Mannering, proprietor of Quinn's, Bond Street, was used to beautiful objects; they were his business.  But even he was dazzled by the beauty of the nest-egg of spun gold and precious jewels offered for sale by the hideous hunchback--and even more so by the old man's niece, Miranda, a girl with cerulean blue eyes and golden hair.  It was some time before Mannering realized the girl was deaf and dumb, the helpless pawn in a violent and deadly intrigue that threatened them all!
