* Sir Percy Pelham is recounting a local ghost legend to his guests over dinner in ''[[Literature/AuntDimity Aunt Dimity and the Deep Blue Sea]]'', and the lights go out just after he recounts a creepy detail.

->''There is something about the light of a lamp held lower than someone's face. The shadows are wrong. They fall in unfortunate places. Teeth seem more prominent. Agnes came to realise that she was alone in a room in suspicious circumstances with a man whose face suddenly looked a lot more unpleasant than it had before.''
