MYSTERY. Upon his death, Andrew Marsh left instructions allowing his niece, Violet, to live at Crabtree Manor for one year to “prove her wits” or all his worldly goods will go to charitable institutions and she will inherit nothing. Somewhere in Crabtree Manor, Mr. Marsh has either concealed a large sum of money or a second will, and Violet has just one year in which to find it. Mr. Marsh was opposed to higher education for women and believed women should have as little to do with “book learning” as possible. Since Violet had gone against his wishes by attending Girton College, Mr. Marsh has set forth this challenge. After learning of Violet’s predicament, famed detective Hercule Poirot conducts a search of Crabtree Manor but finds nothing. Just as Poirot declares himself defeated and takes a train back to London, he suddenly remembers a key clue, and hastens back to Crabtree Manor.
