The Old Inn clings precariously to a cliff top above a storm-lashed ocean. Ethan and Cathy are sick. Their father has left them to fetch a doctor... but they are not alone for long.
A visitor comes begging for shelter, and so the children, who have an unnatural appetite for stories of a macabre persuasion, sit out the throes of the storm in the company of a sailor with more than enough grisly tales to satisfy them. But whatever horrors the stormy night can conjure, they are nothing compared with the heart-stopping revelation of a new dawn...
Eleven spine-chilling tales for older children from bestselling author Chris Priestley.

DISAPOINTING TAKE ON TERROR
So let down by this so called Tale of Terror. The story does not have any terror in it and I wondered why we had bothered. Half way through the children grew bored and wandered off, which they never do when they enjoy their daily audiobooks.
No. His titles do not come up to the stories themselves.
No this was not. I like to vary the childrens genre but could have spent this precious listening time with something quite more entertaining from my vast audio collection. But you live and learn and do not know until you try it.
These are weak stories with a lack of 'gumph' 'sparkle' 'anticipation' and most of all 'fear'.
