Bored with civilian life ex-colonial officer John Wilbraham answers Mr. Parker Pyne's advert to provide him with an adventure and shortly afterwards finds himself saving Freda Clegg from abduction. Freda's late father owned a treasure map and a bogus solicitor will stop at nothing to get it. John and Freda find themselves tied up in a rapidly flooding basement from which he rescues them both. Of course the whole scenario has been created by novelist Ariadne Oliver,who is on Parker Pyne's staff to provide adventures. But is there really treasure or will true love be its own reward?
