The Tell-Tale Heart

Little Black Classics




Horrifying tales of mystery, sickening madness and buried bodies by the master of the macabre.

'Presently I heard a slight groan, and I knew it was a groan of mortal terror ... the low stifled sound that arises from the bottom of the soul.'
Stories about murder, mystery and madness, portraying the author's feverish imagination at its creative height.
