Silverside Station caters to the rich, the famous, and the celebrated— but is it big enough for top thieves Drake Maijstral and Geoff Fu George, both of whom have set their sights on the Eltdown Shard, a fabulous jewel that captures the light of a dying sun, a jewel that dangles around the comely throat of the Duchess Roberta, a beautiful and dashing heiress who clearly has plans of her own.
