A classic Agatha Christie short story, available individually for the first time as an ebook.
A party steps off the beautiful yacht the Merrimaid to enjoy the festivities at shore. Amongst the fortune tellers and yachting races everyone is utterly at ease. But, when the youngest member of the party, little Eve, decides to play a trick with a £30,000 diamond named The Morning Star, the playful trick escalates into a dramatic jewel theft. Hercule Poirot is begged to solve the disappearance of The Morning Star by the most suspected member of the party, who pleads that he is not the purloiner, but then, who is?
‘The plots are so good that one marvels … most of them would have made a full length thriller.’ Daily Mirror
