Their eyes met across a crowded room. She was just a poor servant girl and he was the son of a rich industrialist.

There are risks he can take without jeopardising his plans. He can afford to play cat-and-mouse with the female cop who's on his tail; it might even arguably be necessary. What he can't afford is to let her get too close: he could could end up in jail or, even more scary, he could end up in love ...
