The Sealed Book

(Old Radio Show)

Devil Island

After the death of her mother Anne Drake goes to live with her father in the family home on Devil Island. It is her first visit to the island and Anne has never met her father, but she receives a warm welcome just the same and her father appears to be genuinely pleased to see her.

Drake Manor is sombre-looking building, and there are no other homes on the island, but for a while Anne finds happiness there. She spends a lot of time reading with her father, and his wife, Hester, busies herself with teaching Anne how to cook. When she takes her daily walk, Anne’s Uncle Henry always accompanies her and, on the evenings, she and Henry spend their time playing chess.

Things take a turn for the worse on a dark stormy night, when Henry looks up from the chess board and tells Anne that he can see his brother Richard at the window, beckoning for him to go outside. It is not the idea of facing the elements that scares Henry though; it is the fact that Richard has been dead for fifteen years.
