Publisher's Summary

Henry James wrote many excellent ghost stories, his most famous being, The Turn of the Screw. In The Ghostly Rental a newcomer in town, who loves to walk for exercise, comes upon a deserted rural road. He follows the road and comes upon a house that immediately strikes him as "simply haunted." He is determined to get into the house and find out the truth about it. What he finds out turns out to be quite different than what he expected.

    "Narrator Brings Bland to a Whole New Level"

    If there's suspense and horror in this tale, it's been methodically extracted by Jim Killavey, who plods through it without meaning or expression, pauses at inappropriate places, and drops his tone of voice at the end of every monotonous sentence, if not word. This could have been really spooky, but Killavey manages only to annoy and bore.
