A prying hand brings forth from centuries of sleep…a mysterious thing…it seems a whistle…and on it engraved…these ominous words…WHO'S THAT COMING
Professor Parkins takes a room at The Globe. Away from Cambridge, a peaceful coastal retreat with minimal interruption from the inn's young valet should be perfect for writing. But on taking a walk to explore the area, Parkins finds an ancient whistle with a soul-stirring inscription. Choosing to ignore its warning, the professor is soon to discover he is not alone….
Widely regarded as the father of the modern ghost story, M R James' eerie tale is re-imagined by David Rudkin, described by the Observer as “Britain's greatest living dramatic poet” into this new Christmas chiller.
