Returning from abroad for her husband's funeral, Philipa Lowe does not anticipate any complications. After all, the sensible businesswoman assures herself, she and Graham had been separated for four years and his estate should be easy to settle. It does not take long for Philipa to find her illusions shattered. The first shock is the discovery that Graham committed suicide. Or did he? Her estranged husband was a man to drive others to despair but not himself over a cliff, especially when he had never learned to drive a car. If this is not enough of a puzzle, Philipa learns her husband's estate was anything but small and that he may not in fact have been her husband at the time of his death. As more astonishing aspects of Graham's life are revealed, Philipa asks herself if she can be certain of anything about the man and begins to wonder if he is really dead. With the reluctant assistance of a most unusual law officer, Inspector Oliver Simpson, Philipa embarks on an investigation of her own and is confronted with the death of a stranger - and the full truth about the man to whom she was once married. Facing danger from the forces that destroyed Graham on the one hand and from the police who suspect her of his murder on the other, Philipa takes matters into her own hands and devises a wild scheme to vindicate herself and find the killer before he finds her.
