Radio play: "The Ghost with the Club Foot"

  Welcome to another episode of Maplewood Barn Radio Theatre. This installment is an adaptation of a chiller mystery called "The Ghost with the Club Foot," by Robert Barr. It was first published in 1906 in a volume called The Triumphs of Eugene Valmont. 

Monsieur Valmont was Robert Barr's ironic parody of Sherlock Holmes. While stories such as this one seem to have elements of Gothic horror as well as mystery, Barr's tales were actually written as a poke at his friend Conan Doyle.
