First published in 1927. A married couple and their travelling companion driving through the Welsh mountains are forced by a torrential downpour to take shelter in an ancient, deteriorating mansion whose residents are a strange family and their menacing servant. During the course of the evening not even the drinking and game-playing can diminish the tension that is made more intense by the storm and two mysteriously locked doors on the mansion's top floor. 185 pages. Edgewear, handling wear, corner creasing, 1" separation to bottom spine edges, tanning, moderate general wear. Although currently internally tight, this probably wouldn't survive any but the most careful reading, so unless you are buying it to fill a hole in your collection, treat it gently (hell, treat it gently anyway -- it's a book, dammit, and deserves at least that!).
