The House by the Common


One summer night, Dr Everest of Tunbridge Wells is called to a house near his practice to tend to the dying Colonel Manningtree. But what he believes to be a routine case takes a turn for the sinister when the Colonel's daughter, Dora, visits him the following morning with a strange story. Claiming to have been disturbed by odd noises during the night, Dora is adamant that she heard her father's voice call out to her - and when she went to the room where his body lay, the face beneath the shroud was not that of Colonel Manningtree.
