My Rating: 4/5 stars
At the turn of the 20th century, tragedy has left Maribelle grief-stricken. After her beloved husband is murdered, his body disappears from his crypt. Worse, ghostly voices call from the widow’s Graphophone. Is she losing her mind, or does something wicked this way come?
‘Sing a Mournful Melody’ is a spooky short story with a real Gothic feel to it. I enjoyed the suspense which kept me wondering right up until the very last page whether Maribelle was simply out of her mind with grief at the loss of her husband or were the voices that she could hear coming out of the Grapaphone really coming to get her. It was a very cold and stormy almost winters afternoon here in Melbourne today and ‘Sing a Mournful Melody’ was the perfect short story to read over a coffee.
