Gregory Lancaster dies of pneumonia but when the undertakers arrive the body has vanished, even though his family were in the room below and soon afterwards the body of Lydia Dryfield, the family's former nanny, is dug up from its grave to disappear. Melissa Ackers, the vicar, is not popular with Mrs Lancaster and her daughter Rose, who suspect an affair with Rose's boy-friend Craig Cossley whilst millionaire Sonny Desai, childhood friend of Gregory's heir Felix wants to buy the house from him. New pathologist Kam Karimore presents evidence incriminating both Craig and Felix - Sonny's opportune appearance also puts him in the frame. When two, far from dead, people also disappear Barnaby must identify who claimed on two occasions. Habeas Corpus.

When the undertaker and assistant arrive to pick up Gregory Lancaster's body, they proceed upstairs without any stretcher, gurney or other way to convey the body back down the stairs and out to the (presumably) waiting hearse. See more
