J Jefferson Farjeon    

SYNOPSIS
THE shadow of thirteen loomed darkly over Gatleigh Hall. On the thirteenth of October thirteen years ago there had been a death and a disappearance within its gates. For thirteen years on the fatal anniversary Lady Chelwyn had returned, in response to some mysterious inner compulsion, to her neglected home. Is the past really dead? Will the present provide an explanation of the past ? Mr. Jefferson Farjeon is an accomplished master of the macabre, and yet he does not exaggerate his effects. Just what happened in the lodge at gloomy Gatleigh Hall makes a story frightening in its reality, breathtaking in its suspense.
