Summary

A classic Agatha Christie short story, available individually for the first time in digital audio, performed by Christopher Lee.

Mrs Lancaster doesn't believe in ghosts. She moves her family into a house that has been derelict for years, unconcerned about the story of the young boy who lived there and starved to death. But her own young son is fascinated by his new friend that lives in the attic all alone....

Critic reviews

"The plots are so good that one marvels...most of them would have made a full length thriller." ( Daily Mirror)

Don't listen in the dark

Absolutely brilliantly read, very well written story of course but whatever you do don't listen in the dark or if you get scared easily.
