STORY:
Millionaire Marvin Chase gets badly injured in an car crash - his whole face and his hands have to be bandaged due to severe burns. He's confined to his bed and cannot talk.
When he's starting to sell off all of his property his secretary Nora Prescott becomes sceptical. Just before she can talk to the Saint she gets murdered.
But Simon starts to look into the Chase case when he is asked for help by the stricken millionaire's daughter Ellen.

OPINION: A very good, well-written episode - although you suspect rather soon that there's something wrong with the injured millionaire.
