What dark deed from the past haunts Major Heatherstone? Why does he
live like a hermit at Cloomber Hall, forbidding his children to
venture beyond the estate grounds? Why is he plagued by the sound
of a tolling bell, and why does his paranoia rise to frantic levels
each year on the fifth of October? With the sudden appearance of
three shipwrecked Buddhist monks, the answers to these questions
follow close behind.
Arthur Conan Doyle's Gothic thriller unfolds in his native

The creator of Sherlock Holmes combines his skill at weaving tales
of mystery with his deep fascination with spiritualism and the
paranormal. First published in 1889, the novel offers a cautionary
view of British colonialism in the form of a captivating story of
murder and revenge.
