"An hour before her wedding Rosemary Lang disappears apparently into thin air. She had gone into her room asking not to be disturbed until it was time for the wedding. When Nurse Brace goes to call her there is no sign of the bride to be seen. Peculiarly enough all of her clothes are in her room; not a singledress is missing. No one has seen her leave. To add to the disturbance, th e best man arrives reporting a similar disappearance on part of the bridegroom. Elopement, kidnapping, and even murder are thought of in turn but one after another these theories are discarded because sufficient motives are lacking. Billy Budd, the best man, takes charge of the search. Never having seen the bride he is somewhat handicapped. Horror is added to the mystery bv the murder of Mr. Lang in a very peculiar manner. As evidence is collected everything points to brother of the deceased. The local police are getting nowhere and Fleming Stone is called into the case. Working with incredible brilliance he solves the mystery, which proves far more difficult than anyone had suspected. Suspense is maintained to the very last and when finally relieved the story ends with a crashing speed that only a Fleming Stone Mystery can have." (from the dj).
