AllmenThe Gentleman Detective
Generous, expensive taste, yet broke: a combination that does not bode well. Johann Friedrich von Allmen is a man with a taste for women and the finer things in life. Unfortunately, his luck seems to run out. So when the possibility arises, he turns to stealing. Possessions are fleeting, so why shouldn't he help moving them around? Unveiling a larger crime in the process, he finds a new passion. With a talent for sleuthing, Allmen now wants to retrieve stolen art, attracting dark forces behind the shiny facade of Europe's upper class. The higher the stakes, the more ruthless the criminals – this does not impress him much. While trying to balance his bank account, Allmen needs to dodge bullets and creditors alike. Never bending to the odds, he loves the adventure and is even able to help out the less fortunate on the way while his loyal servant Carlos does his best to keep his employer grounded. Together, these two will find a way out, no matter how many guns are pointed at them.
