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?
