  • 綁架者很少對動物感興趣。最近,綁架者卻盯上了埃莉諾.拉姆齊太太的貓。埃莉諾.拉姆齊太太是一個非常富有的老婦人,多年來,一直同她養的貓拉斯一起住在一所公寓里。拉斯特斯生活很有規律,傍晚常常出去溜達一會兒,并且總是在7點鐘以前回來。可是,有一天晚上,它出去后再也沒回來。拉姆齊太太急壞了,四處尋找,但沒有找著。
  • 33
  • 拉斯特斯失蹤3天后,拉姆齊太太收到一封匿名信。寫信人聲稱拉斯特斯安然無恙,只要拉姆齊太太愿意支付1,000 英鎊贖金,可以立即將貓送還。他讓拉姆齊太太把錢放在一個紙盒里,然后將紙盒放在門口。一開始拉姆齊太太打算報告警察,但又害怕再也見不到拉斯特斯--這點,信上說得十分明白--于是便改變了主意。她從銀行取出1,000 英鎊,并照綁架者的要求做了。第二天早晨,放錢的盒子不見了。但拉姆齊太太確信綁架者是會履行諾言的。果然,當天晚上7點正,拉斯特斯準時回來了。它看上去一切正常,只是口渴得很,喝了半瓶牛奶。拉姆齊太太把她所做的事告訴了警察,警察聽后大為吃驚。拉姆齊太太解釋說她心疼她的貓拉斯特斯。想到她所花的那筆錢,她的心疼就具有雙重意義了。
