Jasper Miller, foreman of The Double Cross Ranch owned by billionaire T. Wayford Cross, enjoys the simple life of a cowboy and daydreams about selling his unique breakfast sausage in grocery stores. While mending a fence he hears a woman cry for help but can't locate her anywhere. At sundown he heads for the ranch house only to be further confused when something white manifests in the near distance and soon vanishes, leaving him worried he might be losing his mind-first hearing things, then hallucinating. Bafflement replaces those concerns when one of his hands tells him about seeing "a flash of white last night at suppertime" and that Drake Jensen-whose fence repair Jasper completed-had complained about hearing things before leaving for his father's funeral. The feminine cry rings out again, followed by a flash of white identical to what he'd witnessed before. Once more searching for her in vain, Jasper decides someone must be pulling a prank. But the woman finally does appear-dressed all in white-and dematerializes, leaving no doubt she's a ghost. T. Wayford gets a taste of Jasper's sausage and deciding to market it, sits him up in an apartment in Arlington. There he meets voluptuous Selma Russell who he learns is connected to the waif on The Double Cross and is almost as ethereal. Caught in a love triangle between Selma, T. Wayford's daughter, and the woman in charge of producing his sausage, Jasper discovers it's him rather than the ranch that's being haunted. He surmises the two specters are motivated by revenge, but for what, he has no idea. Knowing he'll never have peace until he finds out, Jasper leaves no stone unturned until he uncovers the mind-boggling truth.
