    'Mr. Tallent's Ghost' is an amusing tale about an eccentric writer who likes to read his appalling and tedious novels aloud to his relatives...or indeed anyone who will listen. He persuades a lawyer to draw up a will devoting his entire fortune to funding the publication of his writing. Shortly after this, news of Mr. Tallent's death arrives. The disinherited relations dispute the will vigorously, and soon after this, the ghost of Mr. Tallent begins to haunt the relatives and the executor.

    When young heiress Vivian Seymour is found shot to death, corporate attorney Gail Brevard, who's never before handled a criminal matter, is suddenly assigned the case by the partners in her firm. She realizes immediately that no one - not her superiors, not the judge, not the Prosecuting Attorney (her old nemesis, Turner Redland), not the movers and shakers of society - want her to win. She's been set up to lose! The 19-year-old man charged with the murder, Damon Powell, is entrapped by a web of circumstantial evidence.
