With the help of actor Drury Lane, Inspector Thumm chases a stolen manuscript and a man with a rainbow beard

Inspector Thumm has never seen such a marvelous beard. It is massive and pointed, a rainbow composed of all the colors of Joseph’s biblical coat. He’s so distracted by the beard that he hardly notices the man it belongs to: a prospective client with mysterious business. This bearded fellow hands over an envelope containing a million-dollar secret—and the key to a matter of life and death. However, Thumm quickly forgets his strange visitor when a rare Shakespearean manuscript is stolen, only to be replaced by a rarer, more valuable one. With the help of the legendary Shakespearean actor Drury Lane, Thumm must locate the missing manuscript and solve an impossible murder—before the curtain comes down forever.
