Interesting book about the man who saved so many of the jewels. The author posses, but doesn't always answer, several questions about what Albert Stopford was doing and for whom.

VERY detailed. I was bored shortly after I finished after reading the relationships between the various royal houses in Europe at the time. (That part was interesting).
