When Mr. Chiovelli arrives in Oxford to work as a University Professor, he expects things to be different from his beloved Italy. But an empty Victorian Bed & Breakfast, a regrettable attraction, mysterious internet searches and haunting paintings are just some of the things that he did not expect …
Written from the point of view of the unfortunate Professor, this edition of the English Short Stories series takes the reader on a journey of mystery, paranoia and horror, all the way until its unpleasant conclusion.
