A comedy-thriller
by Norman Robbins

A Tomb with a View

Set in as sinister an old library as one is likely to come across, presided over by a portrait of a grim faced, mad eyed old man, a dusty lawyer reads a will (involving some millions of pounds) to an equally sinister family, one member of which has werewolf tendencies!
