Storyline

Hamilton Cleek was spending a week at the home of his fiancée. His every thought was foreign to crime, when he was called to the phone by Superintendent Narkom. A peculiar robbery had been committed in the home of Parovitch, a famous African traveler. Cleek consented to meet Narkom at Parovitch's residence. Arriving there he discovered that a valuable necklace had suddenly disappeared from a box in the art gallery.

The twelfth mystery in the "Chronicles of Cleek" series, by Thomas W. Hanshew, featuring Ben F. Wilson, supported by Gertrude McCoy and the usual strong cast.
