A Scobby Doo Like mystery.

A good little mystery. Spoilers if you haven't heard the audio, don't read the review. It started off as a scary haunted house story, but then it's proven that the hauntings we're caused by criminals. Very much like most of the ghosts in Scobby Doo are proven fakes. Carnacki is a good detective, ghosts or crooks he still solves the case. I wish it had been a haunted house, but I still liked the story.
