Gladys and Annie Barnes are impoverished sisters who have seen better times. They live in a modest cottage in the backstreets of Highgate with Mr. Fisher, a mild but eccentric old man living secretively in the attic above them. Their quiet lives are thrown into confusion when a new landlord takes over, a dreaded and unscrupulous ‘rackman.’ He installs his wife in part of the cottages in the hope that there she will recover from an unspecified malady. With a mounting sense of fear, Gladys and Annie become convinced she is possessed by an evil spirit.

Review:

"Stella Gibbons is the Jane Austen of the 20th century" -- Lynne Truss "Gibbons was an acute and witty observer, and her dissection of the British class system is spot-on" -- Mail on Sunday "Stella Gibbons is - as always -gay, satirical and entertaining" * Aberdeen Press and Journal 1967 *
