Lady Ruby Redwood lies dead the the foot of the grand staircase of the Redwood’s ancestral home, a strange mark upon her neck, while her husband lies gravely ill upstairs.
The famously ill-fated Redwood Rubies, a necklace of jewels looted from an Indian temple, and cursed by the God to whom they were dedicated – seen around Lady Ruby’s neck shortly before her death – is missing. Did she fall down the stairs, was she pushed, or is there something altogether more sinister afoot?
Join Inspector Bartram as he interviews the remaining family members, and friends who were there at the time; locate and examine evidence; search the ancestral home and its surrounds, evaluate the suspects and their statements; get to the bottom of inconsistencies and anomalies and work out what really happened.
What is the strange mark on the carpet at the far end of the room from where Lady Ruby was found?
Who was the last person to see the famous Redwood Rubies?
Who was the visitor at the house earlier that afternoon, and what did he say to make Lord Redwood so angry with him?
Why have the distant cousins descended on the Redwoods at such an inconvenient time?
Who is keeping out of the way at the local inn, and why does he not want to show his face at the house?
The answers to these, and other questions, will help you uncover the truth, and solve the mystery.
