In 1940, Leland Langtry ran off with his redheaded secretary and $10,000 in company funds - or so everyone believed.
Forty years later, Langtry's remains are found in a boarded-up silver mine tunnel. And as the knife still jammed between his ribs had belonged to his partner in Lang-Star Mining, Tom Starbuck - also long since dead - a jury decided that Tom had killed Langtry.
But Tom's widow, Delia, resists the verdict and persuades that very private investigator Conan Flagg to find the real murderer - an impossible job made tougher by the curious reticence of nearly everyone in town whenever Leland Langtry is mentioned....
