Carl Danby returns to tackle another unusual case.
During a séance, a psychic claims the late Samuel Bittner has accused his family of murder. Concerned for the psychic’s well-being, her husband hires the Hudson Detective Agency to investigate.
Danby hits the streets with his tag-along sidekick, Junior. Samuel’s doctor reports death by natural causes—a fatal heart attack. With no body to autopsy, Danby relies on his best skill—talking. As they search for proof that a murder has indeed taken place, they run across a useful ally—an extremely observant funeral director.
Tension increases as Samuel’s relatives refuse to believe the psychic’s claim, insisting the patriarch died of natural causes. With little physical evidence to process, will the veteran detective ever discover the truth?
