Beschrijving

Joel Hetman Jr. is summoned home because his mother was found dead. The only thing his father saw was an unknown man fleeing their home. The murderer was never found and the crime case turned to a mystery. One night Joel and his father were walking down a moonlit road when suddenly the father saw a pale figure. Was it a ghost or was he going crazy?
Joel will finally find out what happened to his mother. "The Moonlit Road" by Ambrose Bierce holds all the answers.

B. J. Harrison started his Classic Tales Podcast back in 2007, wanting to breathe new life into classic stories.

Now in collaboration with SAGA Egmont, his engaging narration of these famous classics is available to readers everywhere.

Ambrose Bierce was an American author and journalist who lived in the period 1842 – 1914. He is best known for his horror short stories, but he was also considered to be one of the pioneering writers of realist fiction. Ambrose Bierce was often called "Bitter Bierce" because of his cynicism and sardonic view of human nature, a point of view which transpires mainly in "The Devil’s Dictionary", a work which was named as one of "The 100 Greatest Masterpieces of American Literature". Other popular works by Bierce are "An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge" and "Tales of Soldiers and Civilians". Ambrose Bierce’s interesting life ended as if it had been plotted by himself. The last that is known of him is a letter he wrote to a friend, which said "I leave here tomorrow for an unknown destination", and he was never seen again.
