Written by Leon Garfield

Mr Corbett's Ghost Synopsis

Mr Corbett is a cruel employer and his young apprentice Benjamin can't help but wish he were dead. So when a strange old man offers to make this wish come true, Benjamin finds it impossible to refuse. Sure enough, Mr Corbett meets an untimely death, but the tables turn on the terrified apprentice who finds himself cursed with the ghost of the man he hated most in the world . . . A brilliant collection of three short stories from a master story-teller, who will keep you turning the pages until the very end.
