"The Wrong Box" is a black comedy novel co-written by Robert Louis Stevenson and Lloyd Osbourne, first published in 1889. The story is about two elderly brothers Masterman and Joseph Finsbury, who are the last two surviving members of a tontine, an investment scheme set up many years before, in which the last member stands to receive a fortune.
Robert Louis Stevenson, know mostly for his tales of adventure and horror, also had a humorous side. This black comedy of errors deals with a coffin that keeps disappearing, and then showing up again in very strange places.
"Perfect Halloween comedy, amusing any time"
