A few weeks after marrying an attractive widow, Gordon Cloade is tragically killed by a bomb blast in the London blitz. Overnight, the former Mrs. Underhay finds herself in sole possession of the Cloade family fortune.
Shortly afterward, Hercule Poirot receives a visit from the dead mans sister-in-law who claims she has been warned by spirits that Mrs. Underhays first husband is still alive. Poirot has his suspicions when he is asked to find a missing person guided only by the spirit world. Yet what mystifies Poirot most is the womans true motive for approaching him.
