The story first appeared in 1846 as a best-selling "penny dreadful", a sensational thriller published in installments. Before the final chapters even had a chance to hit the stands, the first stage version was packing them in at the Royal Britannia Saloon. Since then, there have been numerous stage and literary versions of the story.

I was happily surprised and thoroughly entertained with this title.
"Earns its Audies"
Rasovski's adaptation easily earns its 3 Audie awards. The cast - including Martin Jarvis, W. Morgan Sheppard, and Rosalind Ayres - is superb. The same is true of each musical performance from by Tony Barrand and John Roberts between scenes. I always enjoy the Halloween season, and this macabre story definitely got me in the holiday spirit.
