Publisher's Summary

The dark strains of madness that permeate many of the works of Edgar Allan Poe make their way through this macabre story. This memorable short story bears a resemblance to Poe's Tell Tale Heart. In both stories guilt leaves a murderer with a singular choice. A classic narrated by Glenn Hascall.

Greater potential than realised

The story is typical of Poe with cat mutilated and then killed but continues to an even greater crime. The twist is the way the crime is revealed. The problem is the description would have been much more effective as a sound.
It is of course an audiobook so that is not an option.
An easy and quick listen
