In this fantastical mystery, a scientist devises and ingenious, if not cold-blooded plan for collecting insurance money. First he kills the involved parties; then he brings them back to life. He is quite successful--until Scotland Yard puts its best inspector on the case. Unfortunately, even he cannot figure out the scam until he gets some invaluable assistance from his daughter's fiance.
