Mr Minter, accountant at the firm of Norne's Jewellers, goes down to the managing director's house near Guildford to discuss the fortunes of the firm, which was struggling somewhat.

He is joined by other members of the board but, declaring that he felt ill, he retired to his room intending to begin discussions the following morning.

However, when the time comes he is found dead in bed. Is it natural causes? Is it suicide? Or could it possibly be murder? The last of these possibilities is quickly ruled out but when Chief Inspector French simultaneously discovers a robbery at the firm's vaults, it comes back into the equation.

French joins with the local police force to try to uncover the perpetrators of the crime(s). All the directors fall under suspicion but all have cast iron alibis and it seems as though the investigation is going nowhere.

Then a chance break, which is unique in the annals of robbery at the time, for French provides a new line of enquiry and French revels in interviewing the supects once more. Even then it seems as though everyone has a perfect alibi and ostensibly French seems to retire and leave them all alone.

But his diligence pays off and he follows the directors to the continent and when he discovers that they are heading, in a circuitous way, for Amsterdam, the jewellery capital of Europe, he feels sure that he has got his men.

And, in a rather unusual, and bookish, way, he discovers that he is correct and eventually, with the evidence in front of them all, he extracts a confession ... at which point he turns his attention to his next case!
