Synopsis >

Arthur Arlington is dead and in heaven. This fact is told to him by Archangel Wilfred. In fact, Wilfred tells him that he was murdered. Arthur is unhappy - in life he was a murder mystery writer and he wants to know who committed the crime. Wilfred tells him that there is no way of knowing since they only know the facts about a person's life and no one else's part in it. They will have to wait until the murderer dies to find out. This isn't good enough for Arthur, who demands that he must know now to protect his reputation. Wilfred says that they can grant him one day back on Earth to recreate the murder scene. He was killed by an ivory-handled letter opener inserted into his back. Can Arthur solve the case of his own murder?
