Summary

Set in the historic county of Essex, this gripping compilation includes stories of restless Vikings that still haunt their former sparring grounds; the distraught countryman of Canvey Island forever searching for his horse and cart; the mysterious haunted picture of "Cunning" Murrell, the last witch doctor in England; specters of a runaway funeral carriage; dastardly Harwich smugglers; strange wartime encounters; foul murders; weary ferrymen on storm-tossed nights; and the sites of abandoned wrecks. With his flair for atmospheric storytelling, Robert Hallmann interweaves historical fact and reported ghost sightings with imaginary events to create perfect tales for reading under the covers on stormy nights. Illustrated with charcoal drawings and the author's own eerie landscape photography, this book will enchant readers time and again.
