Pennywell becomes obsessed with remembering the robbery - which by the way, during which nothing was stolen except his memory.
After meeting a woman 20 years his junior and becoming involved with her, Pennywell's need to recover his memories recedes and he only cares about being with Eunice. Unfortunately, Pennywell finds out that Eunice is already married and so he stops seeing her.
This is basically the end of the book. I can't quite figure out the purpose of the story or how the name of the book works with the story. I guess if I cared enough, I'd write the author and question her. But I don't think I care enough about the book to be bothered.
