Watch the YouTube video trailer. A mysterious depiction of masked revellers at the Venice carnival hangs in the college rooms of Oliver's old professor in Cambridge.

    this is the first time I came across Susan Hill's novel. It is a short story and well written. However, I felt the story deserves some elaborations. I am looking forwards to reading her classic ghost story: "The Woman in Black".
