Private Investigator George Robins never saw the waiting corpse. There were times, indeed, when he was inclined to doubt that there had ever been a corpse. Genial Joe Bennett, however, had no illusions about the dead body he discovered in his coat closet at the opening of his new Bagdad Night Club; while the heiress, Myra Eastman, a guest at the Bagdad, hysterically claimed herself a murderess, having hit a wild-eyed intruder with a wine bottle, with fatal results. But Joe Bennett was doing no taking, and Myra's ravings had no visual support. For the corpse, if any, had disappeared.
Were the body in the closet and Myra Eastman's alledged victim one and the same? Who was the elderly intruder in the gray suit, and why had he burst so unceremoniously into Private Room Number One? In the answers to these questions lay the key to George Robin's case which promised no more than a routine investigation when Violet Bennett first asked the detective to investigate her none-to-scrupulous husband's current financial schemes. But that was before the vanishing cadaver entered the picture.
