A young woman, Gwenda, is instinctively drawn to her perfect home in the picturesque seaside village of Dilmouth while searching for a house. Yet the house has a terrible past, a past Gwenda is forced to confront as she suffers a disturbing case of déjà vu.
It transpires that Gwenda lived in the very same house as a child and witnessed a murder -- that of her father's beautiful fiancée Helen, a singer in a flamboyant musical troupe. When Gwenda -- with the help of her love-struck friend Hugh Hornbeam and local detective Inspector Primer -- begins to dig into the pasts of a long roll call of suspects, Hornbeam consults a family acquaintance with an appetite for crime solving -- a certain Miss Jane Marple...
