Some years ago New York Supreme Court Justice Joseph Crater walked out of his office, turned south along Broadway, and disappeared, never to be seen or heard from again.. There were headlines, public clamor and widespread excitement, but the true-life case was never solved.

Something of that same breathless mystery is aroused in this story when Stephen P. Wyndham, internationally known sportsman and last in a line of a rich and respected New York family, vanishes into the gloom of a drizzly Havana night. What is behind the grim crime in that fashionable hotel room? Why would a popular young sporting idol drop blankly from existence?

Follow in the steps of the ambitious young newspaperman, as he pieces together a set of mocking clues that lead through murder and violence, all the way from a sedate Murray Hill mansion to a lonely tropical waterfront. As he works to solve The Case of the Missing Corpse he encounters a varied cast of characters: an erratic spinster, a beautiful dancer, a prominent judge, a movie director, fisherfolk, and gangsters. To get to the bottom of it all, our newspaper must sift the treacherous characters from the sincere, hoping beyond hope that he will be able to solve the riddle of Stephen Wyndham’s disappearance and write the story of a lifetime.
