Contents

  • The case of Coker's missing tenner set all Greyfriars talking. Although Coker was known to be careless with his money but he wouldn't expect two five pound notes to vanish from his blazer pocket just because he left it in his study for an hour or two. Bunter came under suspicion as he chose that afternoon to go foraging for the delightful home made jam that Coker kept in his study. Price, from the next door study, had played the horses once too often and needed to produce ten pounds for his bookie.
  • Bunter eventually managed to persuade Mr. Prout that he had been intent on lining his stomach not his pockets and he resolved to find the criminal.He had just been reading SHerlock Hoimes and it was obviously all very simple. But it took a lot of unintentional help from the Famous Five before he finally uncovered tose two fivers.
