Should he vote to close the convent, which is down to its last three, exceedingly geriatric, nuns? Another convent beneficiary is murdered; arson claims the life of a nun, who, unknowingly, was creating stamp forgeries in the convent print shop; and the Utteridge Brewery fortune, which funds the convent, has several disagreeing claimants, each with plans of their own for spending the money, some noble, some in pursuit of the canon's man- trap niece Christine, a former model now scarred from a car mishap. With a painstaking look around, Treasure vanquishes an ironclad alibi and ties the forgeries to the murders and to the fate of the convent.
The nuns are endearing, but the alibi that depends on an identity switch is pretty stock stuff. Still, there's enough of interest here to charm puzzle fans.

In , Vladi Private Islands sold the island to an English lady lawyer. In the book, the typical features appear such as the one-legged pirate, the talking parrot or the map with the red cross. The story of his treasure island started with a map, which Stevenson drew for his stepson during a holiday in the Scottish high moor.
The map featured an island with bays, harbour places, forests, mills and ruins and an offshore island named Skeleton Island. Before going to print, however, the treasure map was misplaced. The map which is shown in almost all issues of the book to date, is a reconstruction which Stevenson had made up with great efforts from the details mentioned in the novel.

Traditionally, landing on the island has not always been an easy matter. It is quite exposed but once on the island, its striking beauty is evident. A rumour of a hidden treasure on Ailsa Craig has been alive since centuries.
This island rises abruptly from the sea to an elevation of 1, feet or almost meters - a symmetrical cone of rock thrusting from the sea with 14 km of the Ayrshire coastline. A treasure hidden in this knoll would be very difficult to retrieve, as many parts of the hill are inaccessible, thus making it a fantastic hiding place. So far, nobody has been able to unearth the treasure and therefore its existence remains a mystery. The owner does not need to be concerned about this, as over the years, the value of the island has risen so high that the value of the treasure would only be fractional in comparison.
Today, a beautiful lighthouse and some buildings exist on the island. The lighthouse was built and supervised by Thomas and David Stevenson engineers. Further information on Ailsa Craig.
Even James Bond author, Ian Fleming, once dug here in the hope of finding this legendary treasure. Legend tells that when he stood on the scaffold, he threw a cryptogram of 17 lines into the crowd while exclaiming: Joseph Atoll have slumbered the sleep of ages since the dawn of time.
