The Affair of the Pink Pearl
AIRED:
This episode is about the theft of a valuable pink pearl.

Among the guests staying with the Kingston-Bruces are Mr & Mrs Hamilton Betts and Lady Laura Barton. While Colonel Kingston-Bruce is trying to talk Betts into putting money into his ailing company, Mrs Betts's valuable pink pearl is stolen. Wanting to avoid publicity, Kingston-Bruce calls in Blunt's Detective Agency. He feels sure that the thief is his daughter Beatrice's unsuitable friend Rennie, while Rennie and Beatrice suspect each other. It is also possible that Lady Laura is a kleptomaniac.
