Jim investigates when Charlie expresses concern at the influence supposed medium Raoul Barnaby has over elderly Mrs. Jardine with his story that he was contacted by the spirit of a little girl who died in a fire twenty years earlier. Jim finds that she was accidentally killed by Mrs. Jardine's son, who then committed suicide out of remorse but Plemont, the detective in charge, hushed matters up. After Mrs. Jardine has accused Barnaby of being a fraud, her niece Pauline, who is in league with Barnaby to rook the old lady, pushes her aunt downstairs. Following Mrs. Jardine's funeral a ghostly hooded monk appears to Plemont, who is later found dead. The monk exacts retribution once more before Jim discovers his identity - though even then there will be room for - supernatural - doubt. Written by

I know a Jane at school.
She'd be more likely to use the phone, dear.
