Jordan White, a publisher friend of Perry, is called to a hotel where a guest, famous horror writer David Hall, has cleared out the hotel for a weekend and has called his "friends" - an actress, a fortune-teller, David's private assistant and the two remaining staff at the hotel to discuss business. They have come to the hotel as all of them are going to sue David over his new book - "The Resort" which characters are obviously based on Jordan and the guests. A practical joker, David plays tricks on them until he is thrown from the high tower of the hotel where Susan Warrenfield, the manager and owner of the hotel sees the fall and then Jordan at the tower causing the police to arrest Jordan. While Perry and Della try to solve the main mystery, Paul tries to find out who is trying to scare Susan away from the hotel. Could it really be a ghost or a more earthy visitor?... Written by

Too bad you didn't support the hypotheses that David Hall committed suicide, you might never have been found out.
I wanted the world to remember David Hall, not as some suicidal neurotic but as a man who is, a hero, as heroes often do; he met a sad, sudden, and tragic death.

Famous Stephen King like novelist Matthew Faison invites several people whom he's crossed in the past to an evening at a hotel owned by young Kim Delaney and purportedly haunted by the ghost of her father. Her father committed suicide by jumping off a tower and later on she sees Faison doing the same thing.
Two things happen, someone starts out to frighten Delaney with all kinds of spooky tricks. The second is that publisher Robert Stack one of the guests is charged with Faison's murder and gets his lawyer Perry Mason to defend him.
In the films and on the TV series Raymond Burr is an omnicompetent attorney. As often as not his clients are people like Stack who have retained him already for other legal matters.
William Katt as Paul Drake, Jr. gives Delaney his personal attention. In effect he solves the case when he discovers who's been trying to frighten her. Katt provides the ammunition that Burr fires in court.
This one was not a bad Mason film, but one that was easy to predict. Still the performances were good by the whole cast.
