Hitchcock Sewell is an undertaker who finds the murdered body of a waitress on the front door of his funeral parlor, one winter’s evening during a wake. Hitch and his weath­er­woman girlfriend, Bonnie, become obsessed with finding out who killed the waitress.

This is a fairly amusing comic mystery, with a semi-plausible but twisted plot. Hitch is a sym­pa­thet­ic character, albeit one who drinks too much and whose eye wanders.
