He later encounters Spike Mullins , a former American criminal associate, who has fled to England and fallen on hard times. Pitt takes him in.

Spennie invites Jimmy to his home, Corven Abbey in Shropshire Dreever Castle in the later version , and he decides to take Spike with him as his valet. Molly is the daughter of John McEachern , formerly a corrupt New York police officer, now prominent in English society and married to Spennie's mother. The broad outline of the plot then continues as in A Gentleman of Leisure, though the tone is substantially different: in The Gem Collector , Jimmy had been a jewel thief; in A Gentleman of Leisure he merely pretends to be one.
Wealthy Jimmy Pitt falls for a girl on the boat back from England. In New York he finds his old cronies excited by Love, the Cracksman , a new play in the Raffles vein. He makes a bet with his friend Arthur Mifflin , star of the play — he will break into a house that very night. Brooding on how to accomplish such a feat, his house is broken into by Spike Mullins , whom he persuades to accompany him on his mission. They pick a house recommended to Mullins by a friend, and break in, only to be caught by John McEachern , whom they convince that Pitt is a prominent London jewel thief.
He arranges to be paid off, but his daughter Molly enters, and she and Jimmy recognise each other from their boat-trip. To keep his graft a secret, McEachern pretends to Molly that Pitt is a friendly passer-by. After a year wandering the globe, unable to find or forget Molly, Pitt is in London once more. Seeing a stranger in need in a restaurant, he comes to his aid, and so befriends Lord Dreever , known to all as Spennie. Wandering the streets with his new friend, they run into Spike Mullins, Jimmy's only link to Molly, who has fallen on hard times.
Next day, Spennie invites Jimmy to Dreever Castle , and he decides to take Spike with him as his valet.
Spennie's Aunt Julia , we learn, owns a valuable necklace, and her husband Sir Thomas has hired a detective to protect it. Arriving at Dreever, there is no space in the car, so Jimmy volunteers to walk. He catches a riderless horse, and when he finds the rider, it is none other than Molly, who is also staying at Dreever. Her father is highly suspicious of Jimmy, even more so when he sees Spike also on the premises, but is unable to denounce them for fear of his own secret coming out, so he hires a detective to keep an eye on them.

The house party prepares for some amateur theatricals, and it becomes clear to Jimmy that a plot is afoot to bring Molly and Spennie together. They are soon bullied into an engagement, although Spennie loves another and Molly sees Spennie as a little boy. I am sorry to hear about your prawn dish, it is one of our most popular dishes so we have been reviewing what happened on this occasion. I am pleased to hear that the team looked after you and that they did all they could to rectify the issue.
We really appreciate your feedback and look forward to welcoming you back to Dell Quay next time. Met friends for lunch on a chilly windy day so appreciated the real fires and warm atmosphere. I asked for a gluten free menu which they provided- good start. I chose the sea bass which was served with roasted new potatoes and tender stem broccoli.
All well cooked but needed a sauce or something so on request they gave me seaweed mayonnaise which was a good accompaniment. The other 2 had fish pie and sausage and mash. All enjoyed our meals and the friendly service. The prices are typical for a gastro pub so be prepared for for your main. We asked for a window seat but sadly the grey day meant we could fully appreciate the lovely views. Thanks for you visit to us at Dell Quay and review and feedback. We will pass on your comments to our Head Chef. Our first time to the area and really fancied fish and chips.
Met the lovely Katie who was extremely welcoming who showed us to our table next to a wood burning fire. It was a cold day so was comforting from the moment we sat down. I have got to say that the fish and chips were fab, setting warm and friendly and the service and smile from Katie made it even better.

Only gripe,fill the glass chaps! I love this place.
Friendly and helpful staff. Good menu only spoilt by running out of crumble - the choice of three out of four on our party at 1. Log fires in two rooms created lovely warm atmosphere. Would definitely recommend a visit - but maybe look at menu when booking and order dessert choice then. Own or manage this property?go site
Stroke survivors and fishy tales
We drift by, reels at the ready, the swell rolling our boat in a way that will still be felt a day after we return to shore. Not knowing how to fillet is an excuse only for the first day being slow does ensure a brief stint though. Not everything goes according to plan during our four days upon the briney. Two others did.
Kahawai also eluded me though thanks to my mates kahawai did join the kingis in the smoker. But I did catch the second biggest snapper and, as we all know, the one that got away was a whopper. Jim Kayes in his pink beanie.
