"It began innocently enough in an East-bound plane where Doctor Bailey, returning to his New York practice, meets frail, childlike Clarissa Bederaux. Under the gay chatter of the little spinster he soon detects a tone of terror and near-hysteria whenever she mentions her brother Nicholas and his young wife Allida, 'who will be so surprised to see me.' His interest and compassion aroused, Dr. Bailey recommends his own hotel, and even goes so far as to take some of her luggage with him.
His generosity costs him dear. . .he becomes conscious . . . of the same indefinable terror . . .In the dark reaches of the old halls is distilled a subtle poison as elusive and impalpable as it is deadly. And as the doctor, in spite of himself and common sense, becomes more and more involved in the tortured life of the old mansion, the reader is swept along until in the violence of the denouement the black fog of doubt is at last dissolved."; 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall
