The time is Christmas morning in the large house of the wealthy Lord and Lady Chudleigh in a small village in England. When the family woke up, Lord Chudleigh was found dead in his study, stabbed to death with a letter opener. A picture had been removed from the wall of the study, and behind it, to everyone’s surprise, was a small safe. The door of the safe was open and the safe was empty.

There are rumors that Lord Chudleigh possessed the famous Madipore Diamond, which was stolen from India during the Second World War. He had been an officer in the army in India. Although these rumors are persistent, no one has ever seen this diamond.
