Summary

Frances Baird is a detective with the Watkins Agency of New York City. She and a colleague are sent undercover to "The Maples" to guard a valuable set of diamonds during the festivities leading up to the marriage of Mr. Deneen's eldest son, James Jr. Within a few hours of their arrival, however, this seemingly simple task turns into something much more sinister, and it is ultimately left to Frances to unravel the truth of the matter.

Reviews

Bernie

- Miss Frances Baird, Detective

A good story with a clever and partially unexpected resolution, well narrated by JM Smallheer.

Cerise

- Good Story

A good story, good mystery and very well read, the only pity is... but that would be giving away the end....
