Angel Pavement by J. B. Priestley

Twigg and Dersingham, Purveyors of Fine Veneers, has been a successful family firm in the City for three generations. But now, in the depression of 1930, it can no longer cover its costs and the owner, young Mr Dersingham, is looking for cuts.

Then James Golspie arrives with a proposition. He has the sole agency for some excellent Baltic veneers at extraordinary prices and, despite the caution of the company accountant Mr Smeeth, an agreement is reached. But is Smeeth right? Is Golspie everything he seems?
