From The Perry Mason TV Show Book
Willard Nesbitt is dead and he wants to keep it that way.

He supposedly drowned in a boating accident. But it’s almost a moot point—his doctors had told him he only had a short time to live anyway. He wants his delicious young wife Eve to collect on his double-indemnity life insurance policy. But when his crooked business partner illegally cuts Eve out of a $500,000 gold deal, Nesbitt must rise from the dead to warn her. Then someone kills him for good. Eve is naturally a suspect as the police smell insurance fraud. It’s up to Perry to set them straight.
