Traditional Indian music sets the tone for B. M. Croker's Gothic short story "To Let". A family arrives at a vacation home in the Indian hills for some healthy fresh air but, seeing as they've rented a haunted house, relaxing may not be in the cards. Clare Anderson performs in a hushed voice, as if to include us in on her secrets. We feel like close friends while she tells us this haunted story, seemingly off the cuff, in her warm tone. Meanwhile, Anderson's easy pacing builds suspense to that last big reveal. For the next half hour, get ready to get creepy with "To Let".
This is a story from The Moonlit Road collection.
These five 19th-century ghost stories from both sides of the Atlantic provide some of the best chills in the genre. Ambrose Bierce is well-known, but "To Let" by B. M. Croker and "The Upper Berth" also provide moments to tingle the spine, as does "An Account of Some Strange Disturbances" by Le Fanu. This collection, which is further enhanced by suitably chilling music, was originally released under the title Classic Chilling Tales 3.
