Now working for an advertising agency, Jonathan attends a function where he meets satirist Franklin Tartikoff and his wife Rosalind. Some while later, on the same day their adoptive daughter Fariba is returning from the Andemans, Rosalind, having returned from a school-mate's funeral, sees Franklin's corpse through the keyhole of his locked study door but when the police, led by wheelchair-bound Inspector Pryke, arrive the body has vanished. Paranormal investigator Joey Ross asks Jonathan to help with the enquiry and they learn that Rosalind is haunted by the death of a fellow pupil at a botched religious ceremony at school over forty years earlier. After an attempt is made to kill Fariba, Jonathan discovers just how Franklin died and how the illusion of the locked door was created. However the reason for Franklin's demise involves a sinister government plot and Jonathan and his associates are in danger before the case is finally resolved. Written by
