A Novella by

Maurice; Defense Attorney for the recently Possessed and the Dead
He's not your typical defense attorney. He's a bit of a mystery. Nobody knows exactly how old he his. Nobody knows where he came from. But he is a brilliant attorney when it comes to defending the falsely accused in court. And he is a superlative detective. But the only thing is, well, he has his peculiarities.
For one thing, he represents the recently departed. Or the recently possessed. Ghosts and the supernatural provide the vast majority of his clients. It appears to be that the recently dead are sometimes falsely accused of wrong doing, both in the world of the living, and in the world of the supernatural. And somebody has to represent them when falsely accused.
And then there is his thing about driving pink Cadillac convertibles. Or any convertible painted pink from out of the 50's or 60's. Frankly, he's a cross between a hard-nosed Perry Mason of Earle Stanley Gardner fame, and an oriental Charlie Chan of Chan's creator, Earl Derr Biggers.
But make no mistake about it. When Maurice and his odd-ball legal staff is on the case, weird things are about to happen.
