Short Lease


A ghost story with a twist: Maura Jameson visits a deserted country house to perform a structural survey for the new estate agent. Upon finding a man hanging by his necktie in the foyer, she calls the police; during the fifteen-minute wait for their arrival, she experiences in nail-biting detail the events that led to the man’s death.
