The murder began as an innocent parlor game intended to while away the hours on a winter night. But the message that appeared before the amateur occultists snowbound at Sittaford House was spelled out loud and clear. If they're to discover the answer to this baffling murder, perhaps they should play again. But a journey into the spirit world could prove terribly dangerous--especially when the killer is lurking in this world.

A murder occurs in a tiny English village during a snowstorm. The accused is a woolly-headed young man (James Pearson) who happens to have a lively, attractive, and perceptive fiancee (Emily Trefusis) who begins her own investigation.

Nice English setting, lots of humor, good character development, and a satisfying ending.

Finding themselves at loose ends, a small party decides to spend a cold wintry evening conducting a seance. When the table turning, as they call it, turns ugly and spells out a murder victim''s name, they quickly call it quits. For the name that is spelled out is one of their set who is absent from the small party. While it is unsettling, only one of them, Major Burnaby,ventures out into the storm to see if the table has spoken the truth. When the Major finds the cold body of his dear friend, suspicions are soon flung around and the waters become very muddy until an arrest is made. It is with the diligence of the fiance of the accused that all will be made clear. But the true mystery is will she stay with her fiance or will she run off with the dashing newpaper man who is sent to cover the story!
