A man returns from the dead, and the body of a mysterious stranger is found in his room?

A few weeks after marrying an attractive young 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 afterwards, Hercule Poirot receives a visit from the dead man?s sister-in-law who claims she has been warned by ?spirits? that Mrs Underhay?s 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 woman?s true motive for approaching him?
