9780099284369: The Mist in the Mirror

Sir James Monmouth is troubled by memories of the night he took shelter at the Cross Keys Inn. The boy with the pale face...the old woman behind the curtain...the terrible scream...the mist in the mirror...did they have any reality beyond his fevered imagination? However, it was Monmouth's obsession with Conrad Vane, the great traveller, which consumed his mind. This led him to strange people, including the boy with the pale face, recurring as if in a dream.

From the Trade Paperback edition.

From AudioFile:

The Mist in the Mirror is a ghost story reminiscent in plot and style to nineteenth-century English fiction. All atmosphere and mood, it invites reading aloud, and Charles Kay does handsomely by it. His reading has a hushed, intimate quality which allows him to almost whisper his tale in the listener's ear. Although he reads most of the time in the character of the first-person narrator, he gives the brief speeches of other characters good definition and variety. This is a tale of delicious dread, written and read in the spirit of entertainment. J.N. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
