Mimi's Ghost

Mimi's Ghost


Morris Duckworth can’t get over Mimi.

But maybe he should have thought of that before he murdered her and married her sister.

Now Mimi’s back as a ghost, and she seems to be suggesting the way to redemption for Morris. And if anybody should get in his charitable way, then so much the worse for them.
