A rich English gentleman thinks he has found the perfect caretaker for an isolated cottage near the sea: a veteran sailor with a taste for solitude. But when he returns to the cottage months later, the gentleman can find no trace of the caretaker. Then he is savagely attacked by a seagull, normally the most pacifistic of creatures. Next, he encounters a gruesome sight: the corpses of seagulls heaped in a pile on the floor of his apparently abandoned dwelling. Finally, protruding from under the gull's bodies he spies... a human bone! Only in the pages of a confession left behind by the caretaker will he learn the ghastly secret behind all these events.
This is the first-ever audio dramatization of this classic horror tale, with a short introduction about the author Edith Olivier ("The Love Child", "The Night Nurse's Story", "Dead Men's Bones"). Produced in the style of a radio-play with evocative music, exciting special effects and an emotionally stunning climax, it's not to be missed! Adapted for audio and performed by Bill Mills.

I am a very cerebral person and a voracious reader. I am usually listening to something while simultaneously reading something on Kindle.
This author was trying very hard to scare and to conjure up horror. I did not get it. I think it is supposed to be a classic so maybe its me but I do not like overly contrived plot details like these.
