(From the publisher):
Lewis Brading was a frightened man. Owner of the famous and priceless Brading Collection of jewellry, he was beginning to see robbers under his bed. Which was ironic, because he didn't hesitate to deal with members of that profession in the course of amassing his fabulous Collection. When he approached Miss Silver and asked her to take on the role of private investigator, she very properly turned him away with some free advice.
A fortnight later, when she received a letter from Brading pleading for help, it was too late - that morning's newspapers proclaimed that he had been shot dead.
Miss Silver was now involved, and finding out which of the many bees buzzing around the honeypot was the murderer was the fascinating task she set herself.
