A stormy night finds two travellers lost and seeking a dry shelter. A crabby old woman doesn’t stop them from entering the darkened old house anyway. Once inside, a voice warns them to leave a bookcase alone, and creepy laughter fills the air.
The travellers explore the musty old house, but the old man and woman of the house evade them, and trap them in a room. Will they suffer the same fate as the skeleton they find on the floor? If only a door, or loose panel might be found to aid their escape.
Trapped in a hermetically sealed room, John looses consciousness, but as they are about to breathe their last, the hidden door release if found. What has become of the old couple of the house? Can the spooky business of the house be cleared up? Our travellers have surprise on their side as they eavesdrop on the old couple who think the travellers have died in that room.
Secrets pour forth as the old woman tells about her oppressive brother, and the hold he has over her. Hidden compartments hide family secrets, but there just might be a way to put an end to the figure in the coffin from causing more terror.
