Penrose is an eccentric in possession of dazzling gems. Dr Thorndyke is alerted to a burglary at his house, and a scrap of paper is found with ‘lobster’ on it, along with two Latin words. Meanwhile, Penrose flees after a car accident. The police are mystified, but Thorndyke is on track getting to the bottom of a tantalising, complex mystery.
