Sceptical of ghost stories, Mitrofanii dispatches Alexei Lentochkin to investigate the mystery - only for Lentochkin himself to fall victim to the phantom. When two more of the Bishop's trusted advisors meet with unexpected fates, Sister Pelagia takes matters into her own hands.
Translated by Andrew Bromfield.
