The Doughty Library Number 12. From the dust jacket- "Although the cast of The House by the Churchyard is mainly military, the civilians are represented by the doctor, the Protestant rector, his genial Catholic opposite number Father Roach, the physician, Doctor Toole, Irons, the lantern-jaw parish clerk, and not by any means least, the dark-faced Nutter whose chief income is derived from his Agency of the Castlemallard property. To these are added two men of mystery: haunted young Mr. Merwyn, who arrives with a coffin and stays on in a perpetual brooding frenzy which leads the ladies to think he may be a damned soul, and the suave, sophisticated Mr. Dangerfield, an Englishman who rents the villa known as the Brass Castle."
