Until late one night, he finds that maybe they're not just stories. What is that dark, menacing figure riding behind him on a horse? And what does it have in its hands? And why wasn't schoolteacher Crane ever seen in Sleepy Hollow again?

'The Empty House' - It has been three years since Inspector Holmes was seen falling to his death, but Watson is still reluctant to believe it. He has been closely following crimes reported in the newspapers and begins to investigate the murder of Ronald Adair, a case that would have interested his friend greatly.

Fantastic, Spooky Collection

I'm a huge M.R. James and Edgar Allan Poe fan, so this was always going to appeal to me, but the performances took this collection to a new level. The readers are incredible, and the other titles (some I'd read, some I hadn't) were excellent listens, too.
