  • Preston - Nigel's brother - asks Sydney for help to recover a ring that belonged to Anne Boleyn.

    7.5
    Sydney and Nigel go to England and catch up with Preston - who has a poem that may lead to finding Anne Boleyn's ring. Immediately it becomes obvious that Preston and Nigel have a sibling rivalry going on - even to the extent of Preston attaching himself to Nigel's old girlfriend - Amanda. Also apparent is there are 3 parties after the ring - Sydney, another relic hunter Palmer and a shady character Willis. Sydney, Nigel and Preston go through the poem looking for clues and decide that Leeds Castle may hold an answer. They rush over there and discover an old piano - when played with a certain song - opens the cover to a hidden area. In this area, they find a painting that gives them a clue pointing to a jack-in-the-box located back in London. But Sydney finds Palmer dead and thinks that somebody is trying to frame them. They rush to London - but the box has been snatched by Willis. Sydney fights him off but then they all face Willis' partner - Amanda. Nigel gets the gun from Amanda and Sydney knocks out Willis. The ring is finally found in the box.



    In the story, we find a little about Nigel's background and his relationship with his brother. Crispin Bonham Carter - plays the part of Preston very well and Amanda makes a surprising villain. The outdoor/indoor shots of English homes look great and add to the story.moreless
