Araminta Ferguson is a 67 year old retired insurance adjustor. She is helpful and always finds herself in the middle of a police investigation.
Miss Araminta and the other ladies who do church work for the Diocese actively encourage the young people of their various churches to take part in the work, collecting and storing supplies for needy children. One of Miss Araminta's most frequent helpers is a nine-year-old orphan named Janie. Janie confides that she and her playmates have recently spent their free time exploring an old house near the school campus. One day, Janie and her friends have found a beautiful jewelry box. The box is full of jewelry, and no one knows who it belongs to. The children have determined that Miss Araminta should lock it in her desk in the church charity office. What is the mystery of the jewelry box?
