The Case of the Ship's Steward: A 15-Minute Brodericks Mystery

19 pages11 minutes


Jamie and Kendall are visiting the ship the Queen Mary. After peering into a bedroom suite, the family moved down the hall. Jamie quickly pulled out her camera and ran back to the room they had just left. As she stepped into the doorway, she held her camera up.
“Oh!” Jamie exclaimed. She pulled down the camera, just in time to see a ship’s steward step back through the room’s far door. He quickly glanced back as he closed the door. That gave Jamie a chance to see his face, and to see that he was carrying something in his arms. It looked like a small clock.
Is the steward stealing artifacts from the ship? How can they prove it, and where is he hiding the items?
