Publisher's Summary

A short story from British Library Crime Classic The Christmas Card Crime and Other Stories

Inspired by the unsolved Peasenhall murder case of 1902, 'Blind Man’s Hood' shows Carter Dickson’s penchant for true crime. 

When Rodney Hunter and his wife, Muriel, arrive late to a Christmas party in rural Kent, they are unsettled to find the isolated stately home open and empty of guests. While they await the party’s return, they are welcomed in by a mysterious hostess who regales them with the dark legend of Jane Waycross.

A Tale of Mystery and Horror

This story has its roots in the writings of Edgar Allen Poe. Good narration, but predictable story.

Short, direct and thrilling

A short tale, well told and very enjoyable.
The ending is something you could half anticipate but still a good one.
