The Star and The Story

Lady Carstairs owns the magnificent 423carat diamond known as the Star of Rhodesia, and the Scottish Lady has just been to London to visit the King. While she was in London with her son and the diamond, there was an unsuccessful attempt to steal the priceless jewel, so Lady Carstairs has hired the world famous Sherlock Holmes to protect her and the diamond on the return trip to Scotland. As our adventure opens all the passengers are getting on the train and we discover that Inspector Lestrade of Scotland Yard will also be on this trip to guard the diamond. Even as the characters are preparing for the trip to Scotland we are starting to make our guess as to who will be trying to steal the diamond. Sherlock Holmes and his doctor side-kick Watson meet Lady Carstairs and her son in their compartment and we all get a glimpse of the huge diamond. As the train leaves the station and the passengers settle in for the trip to Scotland Watson, Sherlock Holmes and Watson's old friend Major Duncan-Bleek make their way to the dining car for a light meal, and as they are discussing the merits of curry, Lady Carstairs enters the dining car and tells the waiter that her son will be joining her in a moment. Unfortunately, back in Carstair's compartment we watch as her son Roland drops to the floor, dead as a door nail. When Holmes and party discover the dead man they also discover that the box holding the Star of Rhodesia is empty – The precious diamond has been stolen! Holmes soon claims that the son has been murdered by some unknown method when the stone was taken. When Lady Carstairs discovers that her prized diamond has been stolen and her son has been murdered she isn't terribly pleased with Sherlock Holmes and her decision to hire him to protect the stone . . . . It seems that he has failed miserably and his superior deductive abilities were not able to prevent the theft of the diamond . . . . Could the famous detective have fumbled this case? Was he taken by surprise when the jewel that he was hired to protect was taken soon after he began the trip? Will he be able to find and capture the master criminal who has devised the perfect crime? Was it a 'perfect' crime? Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
