Synopsis: A ghost story for adults. Like all good coaching inns, the Green Man is said to boast a resident ghost: Dr. Thomas Underhill, a notorious seventeenth-century practitioner of black arts and sexual deviancy, rumoured to have killed his wife. However, the landlord, Maurice Allington, is the sole witness to the renaissance of the malevolent Underhill. Led by an anxious desire to vindicate his sanity, Allington strives to uncover the key to Underhill’s satanic powers. All the while, the skeletons in the cupboard of Allington’s own domestic affairs rattle to get out too.
