This short story by Anna Katharine Green revolves around a plot to steal some goods secured safely within an impenetrable vault within the confines of Mr. Stoughton's business concern. Nobody seems to have any clue as to how the vault can be accessed, and yet access is gained once a day by person or persons unknown, by a means not known to anyone, apparently Mr. Stoughton himself included! Every clerk in the office is suspect, as the devious plot to plunder the vault's contents unfolds. (Introduction by Roger Melin)



- Cleverly plotted.

This is a story with numerous plot twists that climaxes in a battle of wits. The narrator took some getting used to (I had to slow the speed to make for comfortable listening) but in the end the story reeled me in. Well worth your time.
