  • Overview
    Jack Maskwell, the double-dealer, whose villainy can be admired only because of its audacity. A pensioner of Lord Touchwood, he plots to become his benefactor’s heir and marry an heiress. Toward this end, he pretends to be a friend of Mellefont, Lord Touchwood’s nephew and heir. He also becomes Lady Touchwood’s lover, both for his sensual delight and for an opportunity to put her in a position where she will be a willing tool against the innocent Mellefont.
