Tim Harding, late fourty - well-built - owner of a lanscaping business "Jardiniera", lives at the Côte d'Azur now. A wealthy friend, Barney Tozer from Penzance, also resides there and asks Tim to do him a favour: go to Cornwall, attend an auction, retrieve a ring! It's as simple as that - isn't it?

Robert Goddard's "Name to a face" is written in third person in past tense. The language is quite simple. Lots of contrasts were putting vis-à-vis: wealth - poverty, tradition - greed, mystery - history. The reader goes on a journey to United Kingdom, France and Germany in several times.
In this book there are a few nice twists and turns, but mostly predictable, if you are in this genre!
Tense and tangled! You read ... and read ... and read!
