- Mr. Lodge's dying friend Sir Winthorp Throgbottom leaves him the Blackmoor Emerald, a magnificent jewel that is cursed to bring disaster to anyone who possesses it.
An unusually high death count for an Archie story: both Sir Winthorp and a jewel thief are killed due to possessing the emerald.
Letters from Linda Lewis (Mount Ik.Terr., Wa); Joy Frescott (Wrangell, Alaska); Peter Delrose (Dawson Creek, BC, Canada); Steve Gaskins (Johnsonville, SC).
