So, I needed something quick as I am falling behind in my quest for 100 books. I grabbed this one, made quick work of it as it's about 60 pages. It's pretty interesting and thankfully short as the ending is more Scooby Doo than actual horror, but it's still a good tale. What's more interesting is the life and times of Washington Irving, the author, who was a very influential native New Yorker. I'm gonna look for a biography of him.
