The Dead and the Countess: A Ghost Story for Christmas (Seth's Christmas Ghost Stories) (Paperback)
World-renowned cartoonist Seth returns with three new ghost stories for 2022.
The dead sleep peacefully--until a railway is built near their cemetery. While the old priest works to keep them at rest, the count's dying wife begs to be buried near the railway. But when her last wish is granted, the priest finds that the sound of the train leaves the countess far from at peace.
