Yearning for a little adventure in life, Anne Beddingfeld gets far more than she bargained for: while at the tube station, she sees a man fall to the tracks and die. A man dressed in brown, claiming to be a doctor, pronounces him dead and hurries away, dropping a scrap of paper with the peculiar words “17-122 Kilmorden Castle”. The police conclude the death was an accident, but Anne suspects otherwise. Lord Nasby, the press tycoon, agrees to hire her to investigate the matter. Armed with a small inheritance and the scrap of paper the mysterious man in the brown suit left behind, she sets off on her mission — a mission that takes her from England to South Africa, and that leads to the discovery of missing diamonds, another murder, and attempts on Anne’s own life.

An early — and highly enjoyable — Christie gem! Anne Beddingfeld has always longed for adventure. But as the only daughter of an eccentric professor more content to dwell on the peculiar charms of the Paleolithic period than modern times, she feared her dreams of adventure and romance would always remain just out of reach. When her father unexpectedly passes away, leaving her with a small inheritance, Anne — equal parts practical and romantic — seizes the chance to leave her small-town life behind forever and go in search of her own…
