Format:  Paperback

Pages: 55 pages

Published: 2016

Publisher: Penguin Little Black Classics

Genre: Mystery & Thriller

The short story opens up with a center of three students who are staying in rooms at a secluded college. All appear to be fine until strange happenings start occurring.

I never got a chance to read anything by Arthur Conan Doyle and that includes the Sherlock Holmes stories. Bu after reading this short story, I can’t wait to read more of his work. This story had every making of a supernatural story: sense of strange, tense action , spine tingling mystery. You can feel the drama mounting as you continue reading. There is very little mystery because you figure out what is really going on. But the suspense of the story just captures you that you forget about not having a “whodunit” common mystery. This is a perfect novelette to read during Halloween.

It was a quick and fund read that might possibly let you think twice when you see a mummy’s sarcophagus.

Overall Rating: 5 out of 5 stars
