Adelaide Winters was trained by her colleague and admirer, McBain, to fleece the aggrieved parents of war casualties by pretending to communicate with the dearly departed. They pick their marks from the newspaper, based upon the affluence of their addresses. Adelaide is so convincing to Edward Porter that he wants her to live with him, and invoke the spirit of his son full-time. McBain warns Adelaide that it is time to move on, but she wants to marry Porter for his money. Porter, however, seeks to expedite reunion with his son, and shoots Adelaide first, then turns the gun on himself. Written by
