The Sand-Walker: A Victorian Ghost Story 

Whatever you do, don't go on to the beaches at dusk, or the Sand-Walker will come to your window at night. Such is the sinister warning given to the new lodger at the Beach Farm, a lonely house on the North Sea coast of England. But who, or what, is the Sand-Walker?

Fergus Hume (1859-1932) was born in England, but grew up in New Zealand and worked in Australia before returning to his home country in 1888. A hugely prolific novelist, he never quite managed to repeat his very first popular success, The Mystery of a Hansom Cab (1886), which became the best-selling mystery novel of the entire Victorian era. Unfortunately, Hume sold the rights to The Mystery of a Hansom Cab for 50 dollars and so never received any significant financial reward from the story which made his name.

On returning to England, he produced well over 100 novels and short stories, mostly with a theme of mystery and suspense, and occasionally the supernatural.
