In 1909, if you wanted a high-performance high quality luxury car, the go-to make was Napier, which produced limousines of the highest quality, and also went racing in stripped, lightened versions, with vast success.

This collection of short stories tells of a young Englishman who, after a short successful career racing in England and on the Continent, is taken on by an Italian count as his chauffeur— or, more accurately, his getaway driver, for the Count is a high-class crook! And the car is the "car of cars"
of that year: the 40-HP Napier.
