Martin Tremaine convinces Jessica to visit his Carmel estate and discuss his latest play, "Angel of Death'", which she finds disturbingly dark, then learns why: he fears he's going mad, being physically haunted by the veiled figure of his departed wife Vivian (who committed suicide). However in the estate's cottage where Martin's stepdaughter Courtney Stoddard lives, her husband Philip Stoddard is stabbed to death. Jessica finds out all about the whole family, mostly present for the weekend, plus Martin's blind ex-typist and lover Lisa Ryder, and traps the killer.
