The Face at the Window, the Wave of the Hand

Edinburgh Haunts Episode 3 of 3

By Louise Welsh

Our series of three newly commissioned ghost stories set in Edinburgh concludes with this subtle and uncanny tale from thriller writer Louise Welsh.

'The Face in the Window, the Wave of the Hand' evokes the German folklore of the doppelganger, or double, but is set in a contemporary Edinburgh town house. In traditional tales, your double is a shadow heralding your own death - if you see yourself in passing, it's very bad news.
