“Malcolmson, almost in a chill of horror, turned slowly round, and then he began to shake and tremble like a man in a palsy. His strength seemed to have left him, and he was incapable of action or movement, hardly even of thought. He could only see and hear.”
In The Judge’s House, you will receive an invitation to venture into the wooden corridors of Ireland’s oldest public library. A voice in your ear leads you into the tale of Malcolm Malcomson – a student seeking some peace and quiet alone with his books. Ignoring the warnings of locals, he takes up lodgings at the former home of a cruel judge. And soon his study is disturbed by unsettling sounds from behind the walls that lead to a terrible reckoning with his worst fears!
