  • >>Inspector [ThinkingYes... the case of the missing ring.

  • A very, very difficult case

  • A wedding ring worth £5,000 goes missing just 3 hours before the wedding.

  • After my first enquiries I knew that...

  • this was clearly a job for

  • a very experienced detective.

  • But, first of all,

  • I had a very important job to do.

  • >>Best man [Calling from a distanceInspector?

  • Are you OK?

  • >>Inspector [ThinkingOh no! What does he want? I need more time -

  • quick...

  • [ShoutingErr, yes, I'm just coming. Can I have a cup of tea?

  • >>Best man Tea?! Oh, OK.

  • >>Inspector [Groan... Grunt...] 

  • That's better.

  • [ThinkingNow I was ready to continue my investigation. I had one important question.

  • Which guest saw the ring last?

  • I needed to ask all the wedding guests

  • and if anybody's story was different... ha!!

  • I decided to start with the most difficult person first,

  • the mother of the bride. [Sound of door opening and closing]

  • >>Inspector A word, madam.

  • >>Bride's mother May I help you, Inspector?

  • >>Inspector [ThinkingJust as I thought: she was being

  • difficult. Yes, when did you... [He's given a cup of tea]

  • Oh, bride, tea, lovely, thank you.

  • >>Bride's mother Inspector!

  • >>Inspector When did you last see the ring?

  • >>Bride's mother Inspector. I am the mother of the bride. So, of course, I was arranging the flowers on

  • the suits of the groom and the best man - I am an expert in the art of flowers you know.

  • >>Inspector [ThinkingReally, flower arranging, how

  • very interesting... Hmm... Which flowers was she arranging and... who bought the flowers?

  • Did you see the ring?

  • >>Bride's mother Of course I saw the ring Inspector! The best man kept it in his jacket pocket. He showed

  • it to the groom. It was in a small red plastic box

  • >>Inspector [ThinkingShe really was a very difficult

  • woman... But through hard work and patience, I got the information I needed.

  • The best man kept the ring in a small red plastic box in his jacket pocket...

  • But

  • who took the ring out of the box? Was her story true? It was time to talk to the groom.

  • And you?! When did you last see the ring?

  • >>Groom Me Inspector?? Well, err... Well... let me think, I was talking to the best man. He showed

  • me the ring. It was in a small blue plastic box,

  • which he kept in his jacket pocket.

  • >>Inspector [ThinkingHmmm. Very interesting. But what

  • did the bride see?

  • You!!

  • Bride.

  • When did you last see the ring?

  • >>Bride [Sobbing] I was fixing my hair and my mother

  • was fixing the flowers for the best man and the groom. I saw the best man take a large

  • red plastic box

  • out of his pocket. He opened it and showed my wedding ring to the groom.

  • Inspector, you will find my ring, won't you??

  • >>Inspector She's still asking difficult questions...

  • And why does she keep crying all the time?

  • Next on my list: the best man.

  • And you?!!

  • >>All Me?

  • >>Inspector No, not you, you.

  • >>All Me?

  • >>Inspector No...

  • You.

  • Best man.

  • >>Best man [InnocentlyWho me?

  • >>Inspector Yes you.

  • When did you last see the ring?

  • >>Best man Ah, well, I was talking to the groom. The

  • ring was in a small red wooden box.

  • I kept it in my jacket pocket.

  • I showed it to the groom.

  • That's the last time I saw it.

  • >>Inspector [ThinkingJust as I thought: another character I can't trust.

  • I knew I had to keep my eyes and ears open. Which guest was lying?

  • I needed a place to think -

  • but I couldn't go back to the bathroom...

  • then I found the solution

  • - the garden.

  • Each one of these...

  • people had told me their story

  • But who did I trust?

  • Something was not quite right... What was it?? [Thunderstorm]

  • [ThinkingIt came to me suddenly, as if

  • in a dream... But I knew it wasn't a dream. No, all my experience and my excellent detective

  • skills made me realise that each and every one of them had made a mistake in their story.

  • The groom said the box was blue, but everyone else said it was redThe bride said the

  • box was large, but everyone else said it was small. The best man said the box was wooden,

  • but everyone else said it was made of plastic. [Thunder]

  • >>Inspector [ThinkingAnd with that, I had all the evidence I needed

  • but I had one more question:

  • what's happened to the horse?

  • [Thunder]

  • >>Narrator So what is the truth?

  • Who is the thief?

  • And does anyone know anything at all?

  • Find out next time, when Inspector Stone continues to uncover more vital evidence in the case

  • of the missing ring.
