Simon Inescort is no longer bodily present in his marriage. It’s been several months since he died. Simon's widow, Lorca Pell, has sold their farmhouse to newlyweds Zachary and Muriel — after revealing that the deed contains a “ghost clause,” an actual legal clause allowing for reimbursement if a recently purchased home turns out to be haunted. In fact, Simon finds himself still at home. He spends time replaying his marriage in his own mind, while also engaging in intimate observation of the new homeowners. But soon the crisis of a missing child threatens the tenuous domestic equilibrium, as the weight of the case falls to Zachary, a rookie private detective.
