At a funeral for the wealthy Sir Oliver, a shocking uncertainty is uncovered: he may not be dead. As the pallbearers begin to carry the coffin out of the church, a maniacal laughter rings out, and there’s no doubt among Sir Oliver’s friends and family that it’s his laugh. Sir Oliver was a well respected person in his community, happily donating money to the local church and hospital, and as such a reporter named Peggy Ward is at the funeral service. When she reports on the occurrences, a scandal sweeps the town as everyone becomes paranoid about “The Laughing Corpse”.
Sir Oliver’s brother and heir to his estate, Sir Cecil, believes his brother is indeed alive and out to get him. His fears are realized when his lawyer turns up dead, slain by a man dressed in black wearing a skeleton mask. His weapon of choice is a ring in the shape of a scorpion, which holds a potent amount of venom that is untraceable. Scotland Yard is quickly called into action to investigate, led by Inspector Higgins. He has a tough job ahead of him, with countless colorful characters to interrogate, a reporter that can’t seem to keep her nose out of his business, and a rising body count that shows no indication of slowing down.
