Storyline

During a first class flight to London where Hollywood producer Gunnar Globle makes Jessica proofread a script to stop him yapping, actress Sonny Greer's bodyguard-driver-lover Leon Bigard dies, poisoned. Sonny cries murder as soon as she notices his precious cargo, the $2,000,000 empress diamond necklace, is stolen; it's found in the bag of stewardess Kay Davis, who switched flight last minute, but jeweler John Sukahara notices it's paste, Sonny denies it could be a security decoy. Together with Scotland Yard's paper-pusher inspector Errol Pogson on board, Jessica examines the passengers. She finally finds the real one, but disbelieves the thief's murder confession on surprising grounds... Written by KGF Vissers
