Technical journalist, Keith Stewart writes articles about how to build miniature machines in a magazine called the Miniature Mechanic. It doesn’t pay well but he likes the work. His sister her husband leave their 10-year-old daughter with Keith and his wife. Before leaving, they ask Keith for assistance in hiding a jewelry box in the yacht’s concrete ballast. When the couple are killed in a shipwreck  Keith becomes the permanent guardian and trustee of his niece. But, the solicitor handling the estate finds that the money has disappeared; the evidence suggests that Keith’s brother-in-law converted his wealth into diamonds to take with him in the jewellry box.


Nevil Shute’s last novel published posthumously. The volue is in excellent condition bound in red cloth.
