Fiction, Mystery & Detective
Mr. Dinsmead lives in a secluded area with his family. That night, the family had dinner and Mrs. Dinsmead seem nervous. It was raining hard that night and his daughter was complaining why they had to live in such a drab place. When they were about to start eating, they heard a knock by the door. Mr. Mortimer Cleveland was stranded and came to the house for shelter. For some reason, he felt excitement upon seeing the house and knocking on its door. The Dinsmead family let him and offered him a place to stay for the night. Mortimer noticed how everyone looked odd. The Dinsmead daughters were sent up to prepare the room for Mortimer. When he was preparing for sleep, he noticed a hand-written SOS in the dusted mahogany table.
The creepiness is felt from the start just like you would normally expect in an Agatha Christie movie and book. Mr. Mortimer Cleveland was very observant from the time he stepped into the house to solving the call for help.
