A Humorous 1920s Ghost Story.
George Simpkins is in a state, and it’s not just because of the gin. His wife remains missing, his son a curious and callous enigma, and, most worryingly of all, his spouse’s erstwhile schoolmate, the witheringly waspish Cynthia, has plans afoot for his future. Welcome to the world of Hinton St Cuthbert, where London society collides with half-cracked Somerset locals steeped in cider and superstition, as well as a far from welcoming spirit.
A follow-up story to Old Crotchet that opened the West Country Tales series, this dark-humoured ghost story will possess an appeal for fans of Noel Coward’s Blithe Spirit and traditional British supernatural fiction in the vein of E.F. Benson.
