One summer night, Dr Everest of Tunbridge Wells is called to a house near his practice to tend to the dying Colonel Manningtree. But what he believes to be a routine case takes a turn for the sinister when the Colonel's daughter, Dora, visits him the following morning with a strange story. Claiming to have been disturbed by odd noises during the night, Dora is adamant that she heard her father's voice call out to her - and when she went to the room where his body lay, the face beneath the shroud was not that of Colonel Manningtree.

Is Dora insane? Is the house haunted? Or is there a more sinister human agency at work?

A macabre Victorian mystery from the pen of Thomas Cobb, author of The Disappearance of Mr Derwent - also available in Black Heath Classic Crime.
