Horowitz Horror: The Phone Goes Dead

David’s mobile won’t stop ringing, but these are no ordinary callers. He seems to have a hotline to heaven – or is it to hell? Isabel has a nasty feeling that the Victorian bath her parents have installed is waiting for her. Unfortunately it isn’t waiting for a bubble-bath… more of a bloodbath. Two terrifying tales from a master of fear.
