Waiting for minimum critic reviews


"My family-name is Blue-Beard! I'm going to open Somebody's Luggage all alone in the Secret Chamber -- and not a female eye catches sight of the contents!"

Such a mystery! On the first day of the year 1857, a man left his inn and requested his luggage be ready when he called for it -- then never called. Nor paid his small bill.

Christopher, a Waiter (one of a large family of Waiters, dignified and dedicated in their trade) is made the offer years later -- won't he pay the small bill? And have the mystery all to himself?

In this delightful tale from Dickens, Christopher discovers more than just ordinary travel-goods, when he opens those long-locked valises!
