Whispering In The Dark By Ruskin Bond. ‘One by one the clocks of the town struck midnight, when the sounds died away the deep silence of windless night fell again over everything. A great imagination makes for terrific ghost stories—stories that go beyond the tapping on the doors in the middle of a night or a whistling thrush or even a squeaky swing in the wind. This is a collection of some such horror stories selected and compiled by Ruskin Bond that will send shivers down your spine. There is Flaxman Low, the Sherlock Holmes of the supernatural, and his psychological detection by his creators E. and H. Heron; Algernon Blackwood’s ‘The Decoy’ and ‘The Empty House’ taking suspense to unbearable lengths; a friendly hoax in Perceval Landon’s ‘Thurnley Abbey’ that turns into real horror; Alice Perrin’s jungle thriller ‘The White Tiger’; and many more such tales that will spook you with the very best of suspense, mystery, and the supernatural.
