When the main character get to spend the holidays in Norfolk with a friend, he couldn't have imagined the family horrors. That's what you get with this short story. There's a bit of mystery, a chilling ghost story and to top it off the author continues in his homage to M.R. James.
This short story was mysterious, intelligent and wonderfully creepy. It's not quite as dark as "The Voivod" but it doesn't lack in lustre. The pacing had a smooth rhythm that had me reading much faster than the first and the ending didn't disappoint.
