Ned possesses the unique talent of being able to bring the dead to life merely by touching them. However, the person may remain alive only for one minute, or else someone else dies for them.

The trio, aided occasionally by Olive Snook, helps solve the mysteries of various murders, whose murderer is often surprising.
