(From the publisher):
She was just another corpse in a casket... until she smiled.
Her black shroud was diaphanous. Her eyes were dangerous. And she wasn't dead at all!
A hysterical undertaker finds an unidentified body laid out in one of his best coffins and summons Lieut. Al Wheeler out of a deep sleep into a living nightmare - a nightmare that includes a murdered M.D., an ex-addict psychiatrist, a hypnotic blonde, and a foolish vamp who flirted with Death!
