The Ghost Walks
Twilight creeps through the narrow alleyways and hidden courtyards of the old, old city. Its gnarled fingers unlock ancient secrets of dark deeds that lie entombed behind crumbling walls. It whispers into the shadowy recesses of a forgotten part of Norwich, disturbing the sleep of the long departed, and the City of the Dead stirs once more into ghostly, ethereal life.
