For several weeks after the body of her husband has been pulled from the sea, Arlene Fleming receives calls from the allegedly dead spouse and finds evidence to suggest that he is still alive. The doctor advises admittance to a sanatorium to prevent a nervous breakdown. The Saint discovers that the main beneficiary to Fleming's will is his nephew, Andrew, who seems to be very closely involved with his uncle's main business rival. The Saint tries to talk to the locals to find out how Fleming died but is greeted by general hostility until one of them tells the Saint she is convinced that Fleming was murdered.
