Murder by Death

I read cozy and historical mysteries, a bit of Paranormal/UF, and to mix it up, I read science and gardening books on occasion.

Mrs. Zant and the Ghost

Mrs. Zant and the Ghost - Wilkie Collins, Gillian Anderson

A quick 1-hour and change audiobook of the short story by Wilkie Collins about a man and his daughter who stumble across a woman in the park who is either haunted, or mad.

 

I was really enjoying the story until the very end: it felt entirely too rushed and very little was explained enough to my satisfaction, although to be fair I was ferrying cats in the car at the time, so I might have missed something.  

 

Gillian Anderson's narration was excellent; I had to get used to the deeper voice and accent, but she is able to capture the different characters beautifully.

 

I'm using this short as my Free Space square on my Halloween Book Bingo card
