Bernie Magruder knows that almost anything can happen in the old Bessledorf Hotel, where his father is the manager. With a bus depot on one side and a funeral parlor on the other, all sorts of people are around, and all sorts of things take place on the three floors of the Bessledorf. |
But when a ghost begins to make a regular appearance in the hotel -- a silent ghost in a pale blue light -- panic sets in. Even Bernie is worried, though not as worried as his mother, who, when she learns that the ghost appears to be about the same age as Bernie, is afraid he has come to take Bernie to his grave.
Finally, the future of the Bessledorf is at stake as word of the ghost goes out, and it is up to Bernie and his friends, Georgene and Weasel, to figure out why the ghost has come and what can be done to solve the mystery.
Anything can happen in a building as old as the Bessledorf, but when Bernie Magruder is there to dig up the reasons for mysterious happenings, the results are always entertaining and most of the time downright funny.
