Publisher's Summary

Taking a winter holiday in a splendid resort in the Swiss Alps our hero finds himself billeted in a surprisingly large room, furnished with two beds. He checks with the man at the bureau, but there’s no mistake: it’s all his, a veritable snip at 12 francs a night! What a stroke of luck! And what could possibly connect this alpine idyll with Boston, Massachusetts? E. F. Benson is well known for his Mapp and Lucia novels but his ghost and supernatural stories are marvellous jewels, combining elegant writing and moments of blood-curdling horror. Here Greg Wagland narrates one of the best of them, for Magpie Audio.

    "Chilling"

    New to E.F.Benson, but a great lover of ghost stories, I thoroughly enjoyed this story. It has echos of 'Oh Whistle and I'll come to you' by M.R. James and others but adequately holds its own.



    Set in the Swiss Alps, it tells the story of a gentleman staying in a hotel who is snowed in while heavy storms set in. For 12 francs our gentleman finds himself in a huge room which actually has two beds in it, a luxury indeed! What follows is a series of impressions, dreams, half seen visions and sounds as if another guest may be inhabiting the room, in the other bed...



    Brilliantly narrated by Greg Wagland, this is a charming tale, containing suitable spine-chilling moments. Highly recommended.
