    'Six stories of suspense and the supernatural from one of Australia's favourite writers, Garry Disher.

    'It's a great feeling to break away from home, school and the restrictions of your childhood years, to test yourself in the world at last.

    'First flight, first love, first job, first holiday alone, first place to call your own. You feel as if anything could happen, and you're prepared for it. You're no longer restless, you're flying free.

    'But wait, there's a final test - if you can survive it.

    'Can you outlast the walking dead, the stair creak at night, the ghosts of the past, the treachery of those you trust and love?'

    What is it about old houses that stirs the imagination? Is it the presence of the house itself? Its shuttered windows; its gaping doors..the long dark tunnel of its hall? Or is it the remembrance of some dark and secret episode of childhood? Some shameful, long-buried memory we dare not share?
