A valuable collection of coins (known as The Ten Kings) is about to be auctioned off. The owner checks into a hotel and places the coins in a high security safe in his room. He's the only one who knows the combination, yet the next morning he opens the safe and finds the coins gone. He calls the police, but since he's the only one who knows the combination, they and the insurance company assume he has them and is going to cry for his insurance. He calls Banacek, and Banacek starts by looking at the ones who were going to bid on the coins and see if any of them wanted to avoid paying him. Written by

Well, I'M just fine, Wendell. How are you?
Fantastic. Woke up this morning with a terrible hangover, called that the Ten Kings had been stolen - that was good news, 'cause not only did I write the policy but Allen and Lydia Markham are very good friends of mine. Well, anyhow, I get over here and Hallohan and my own people tell me there are no clues, no leads, no anything. Then, I hear that the great turtle-necked Polish vulture's on the case - and there you were, walking right through the door.
