Publisher's Summary

“Then it stopped. Its head flowed around on its shoulders, as it seemed to have discovered the crib. It loomed there motionless, examining the small cage from across the room. Then Pat knew - it was looking for her.”

A true ghost story! Based on a real incident that the author's mother experienced as a child.

It's a snowy night in a spooky new house and Pat fears bedtime because when the lights go out a malevolent entity stalks the dark!

Quick, Spooky, and Worth Your Time

I very much enjoyed the story. The narration could have been a little better, but the story itself was well worth the time it took to listen to. If you're looking for a quick spooky story, look no further.

Fabulous and creepy!!

I love this story, and the narrator has captured the atmosphere of this very creepy tale perfectly! Ian is a stunning writer, and this true tale sends shivers down my spine. I will certainly be sleeping with the lights on for a while after hearing this amazing audio story!
