MYSTERY. Philip Ridgway was entrusted by the London and Scottish Bank to transport one million dollars of bonds from London to a bank in New York. The bonds were counted in Mr. Ridgeway’s presence in London, sealed in a packet, and then put in a trunk that had a custom lock with only one key, which was solely in his possession. However, just a few hours before the ship is due to dock in New York, the trunk is found open and the bonds missing. Despite a thorough search of the ship and its passengers, it’s as if the bonds have disappeared into thin air, prompting Poirot to declare, “We will dismiss the ‘thin air theory,’ which is not practical at the present stage of science.” But the question remains: Who took the bonds, if not Philip Ridgeway?
