Hercules Nelson's aunt and uncle invite Hercules and his best friend, Lucas, to spend the weekend with them. With suitcases in hand, the boys arrive at Uncle Bob's to discover that Uncle Bob is a mortician and there's a funeral scheduled Monday. Well, it's not long before things start happening in ways that would put most brave men to flight. For one thing, the corpse walks, reads the paper, and climbs into bed with Hercules. He gallivants around in a most uncorpus delecti fashion! Needless to say, the boys are terrified until they find out that Mr. Quigley, the corpse, isn't really dead. Someone tried to knock him off while he was sleeping so he devised a plan: he'd make his family think he was dead, then show up at his own funeral and trap the guilty party. No doubt Mr. Quigley had a good plan and no doubt things would have ended peacefully, but there's two things he failed to consider . . . Lucas Maxwell and Hercules Nelson. Fortunately, they all escape with their hides, but not before one of the wildest finishes ever!
