THE LADY VANISHES
Sweet, very rich Mrs. Edith Rossiter would be better off dead--for a surprising number of people. Her greedy daughter covets her fortune. Her son wants large sums of cash. And the family of her gravely ill sister would get a fat windfall if Edith should expire first. Edith, however, is alive and well in Taviscombe's finest nursing home until ... without leaving a trace, she suddenly vanishes.
With no evidence of foul play, Mrs. Sheila Malory has only suspicions about her old friend's fate. She hears nursing home gossip about Edith's stash of sleeping pills, about an argument, about the appearance of a mysterious man and woman, so she uses her skills as an amateur sleuth to nose around the widow's secrets. And there Mrs. Malory makes a discovery that--in the case of Edith at least--family and friends would find shocking ... except for those who firmly believe there is life after death....
