The Toll-House has a long and terrible history as a place of death. But Jack Barnes doesn't believe in spirits. His travelling companions, Messrs. Meagle, Lester, and White, wager that he might be convinced otherwise if they all spend a night together in the house. Four men go in, but will four come out?
William Wymark "W. W." Jacobs (1863 – 1943) was an English author of novels and short stories, most famously "The Monkey's Paw."
