When war ends, terror begins.

A fist fight that reverberates down the years. A family devastated by war. A flight from despair.

John Andrews leaves industrial Newcastle for a remote village in post-war Cornwall. A village of reclusive inhabitants, where the birds don’t sing. A village haunted by its past that intrudes upon the present.

He falls in love, but it is overshadowed by a series of increasingly terrifying events. He encounters members of a tragic family, sees his maternal grandfather, meets his older brother; not so remarkable, perhaps, except that all are dead.

Events spiral out of control and John is forced to battle to save what remains of his family, his first love, his very sanity. Not to mention his life.

This carefully crafted ebook: “20 HAUNTING TALES OF MYSTERY & MACABRE: Ghost Stories of an Antiquary - Volume 1&2, A Thin Ghost, The Story of a Disappearance and an Appearance, The Residence at Whitminster…” is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. M. R. James (1862-1936) redefined the ghost story for the new century by abandoning many of the formal Gothic clichés of his predecessors and using more realistic contemporary settings. However, James's protagonists and plots tend to reflect his own antiquarian interests. Accordingly, he is known as the originator of the "antiquarian ghost story". He was was a medievalist scholar and provost of King's College, Cambridge (1905–18), and of Eton College (1918–36). Though James's work as a medievalist is still highly regarded, he is best remembered for his ghost stories, which are regarded as among the best in the genre.
