"The silence was unbroken. I looked round, and the five couriers were gone: so noiselessly that the ghostly mountains might have absorbed them into its eternal snows." Thought recently married, the honeymoon fase of a young English couple is disrupted by the bride's haunting dreams. Every time she closes her eyes, the vision of a dark and remarkable-looking man with a mysterious air appears before her. He says nothing. He does nothing. He just looks at her. One day the bride's husband brings home a new acquaintance, an Italian man named Dellombra. And he looks precisely as the man of the bride's nightmares. To Be Read at Dusk is an excellent and atmospheric ghost story, written by the best in the business.
