it was amazing

Amazing. One of the greatest plot twists I've read.

A man becomes perplexed by rats he heard in the walls and finds aid from his cat and an assistant. They explore the family mansion/ castle and find a horror of human remains, and the inevitable answer.

"They must know it was the rats; the slithering scurrying rats whose scampering will never let me sleep; the daemon rats that race...and beckon me down to greater horrors than I have ever known; the rats...the rats, the rats in the walls."

Glenn Russell Very nice, Brian. Perhaps you know, the rats in the walls (or perceived rats in the walls) play a huge part in his tale - Dreams in the Witch House, featuring Brown Jenkins.

I've never read that one. I'll be looking for that. Thanks! :-)
