It’s the middle of the summer, and Carol has been down with a flu for nearly three weeks. Just as she’s starting to feel better, she’s contacted by Immodia, whom she met on a previous case. Immodia is nervous because the man she is trying to persuade to marry her, the recent widower Henrik, has suddenly disappeared. She wants Carol to “catch” him. Carol is only moderately interested in the case, but decides to take it and soon discovers Henrik’s disappearance turns out to be far more complex than a widower getting cold feet.
