Summary (IBList user synopsis):

Yet another of Stoker's contributions to the Victorian tradition of the Christmas ghost story. This work is Stoker's take on the "predicament tale" perfected by Edgar Allan Poe in works such as "The Pit and the Pendulum." Stoker indeed seems to be drawing on Poe here, for this dark tale (the predicament involves an "Iron Maiden" and one of Stoker's brash American characters) has its horror precipitated by a black cat.
