The third in the Topper comedy-mystery series, Cosmo Topper is besieged by a wisecracking ghost who demands that he help her find her killer. She was murdered while vacationing at the home of her wealthy friend Ann Carrington, the intended victim. Despite protestations from his wife, Clara, Topper and Gail set out to find her killer and keep Ann from a similar fate. Carrington Hall is a magnificent old haunted house, complete with a cloaked villain who comes and goes through walls. Falling chandeliers, secret passages, and a trap door with a chute that leads to an underground tunnel add to the mystery. The cast of characters includes a malevolent butler, a straightlaced housekeeper, and a frightfully playful seal. Rochester, Topper's eternally frightened chauffeur, at one point threatens to quit and go back to Jack Benny! But will the murderer be revealed from among the house servants, guests, and family?

Twenty half-hour epoisodes from the Jack Benny radio program that featured Eddie Anderson as Rochester. "In the realm of unforgettable radio voices, there is one that stands head and shoulders above all others -- one distinctive voice that could never be convincingly duplicated, one that brought its owner undreamed of success. It was a voice of sandpaper and gravel and rusty scrap iron, rasping over a nation's loudspeakers for more than thirty years. The one and only: Rochester. As Benny's valet, he was a servant, but he was never servile. From the start, Rochester had his boss sized up and knew exactly how to manipulate him to suit his own purposes. This collection brings you some of Rochester's finest moments with Jack, Mary Livingston, Don Wilson, Phil Harris, Kenny Baker, and Dennis Day"--Container
