From the Inside Flap
Perfect, Trevor sighed. Oh, absolutely perfect. How do I get you out of there, Gwen? How do I bring you home so you can help me?
Trevor walked down a little further, seeking some sort of way into the back of the mausoleum, and he found a row of blank panels, one of which was off and leaning against the wall.
Crouching down, Trevor examined the freed panel and the bolts which had held it in place. A smile settled onto his face, and he stood up. I can take the whole panel off and pull the coffin out. Her skull will be clean and ready to go.
A shiver of excitement raced through him as he hurried back to the office. He searched the office quickly, and in the bottom drawer of the desk, he found a toolbox. Trevor flipped through it, saw that all the tools he might need were there, and carried it back into the mausoleum. He whistled as he approached Gwen's plaque. Setting the toolbox down, he stood in front of the wall of names for a moment.
Thank you, he thought. You have no idea as to how important this is for me.
Squatting down, he flipped open the lid on the toolbox and dug out a large, flathead screwdriver. In a heartbeat, he was standing again and prying the covering off the first of the bolts.
By the time he reached the fourth bolt, he was sweating freely, and he had to take a step back and stretch his back. He was tired despite his excitement over figuring out how to get at the skeleton. Dropping the screwdriver back into the toolbox, Trevor looked at the different sockets and picked out a few, which appeared as though they might fit the bolts.
It took him almost ten minutes to find the proper socket, and it was buried on the bottom beneath several pieces of heavy grit sandpaper. He sucked at the knuckle on his thumb, blood seeping out of it from a cut he had received from grazing one of the many tools he had shoved aside.
Stepping up to Gwen's door, he fit the socket onto the driver, then the socket onto the bolt. Grinning, he turned the driver to the left.
The lights in the mausoleum went out.

In The Hanging Tree: Adrian is talked into visiting a cemetery, by his girlfriend, Laura. She tells him that witches were buried there hundreds of years ago.
Just For Fun: “Lance Delk didn’t need to rob anyone. He just liked to.”
Lance also likes to use a cemetery as his base for his operations as a thief. A true sadist, he gets a strong kick out of terrifying and tormenting anybody who is unfortunately walking by.
Late Night Studies:
Trevor Brown gets a job working the late night shift in the cemetery. He secretly wants to steal a skull to help him in his new career as a voodoo priest.
"The Hanging Tree": What a special--an exceptional--short story! Mr. Ripley's stories are always fine, but "The Hanging Tree" goes "above and beyond" in sheer horrific quality. If the implacability of this terror doesn't frighten you--well, I feel sorry for you.
"Just For Fun": A successful criminal practices his "trade" by hiding near cemetery gates, robbing and humiliating innocent civilians. This night, he chose the wrong cemetery.
"Late Night Studies": Excitingly terrifying, with the implacability of horror that Mr. Ripley delivers so skillfully. A young man with an ulterior motive takes a night shift security guard position at a local cemetery. Certain aspects of this story when revealed may be upsetting to sensitive readers .
Just for Fun isn't what it seems, neither is meeting your match at the cemetery----- as they say Karma is a witch with a capital B and what goes around comes around.
Late Night Studies is enough to give you shivers down your spine with the study being the cemetery and dead spirits......enough said!
Well written :) Give me more. Thank you to all the contributors and all of Scare Street.
A young man discovers too late that his girlfriend is much more than she let on when they visit an old graveyard. A man attempting a crime meets his untimely demise in a particularly nasty way. A wannabe voodoo practitioner gets his just desserts when he attempts to acquire a skull to begin his practice.
Ron Ripley demonstrated his usual high quality of writing with this volume. He never seems to run out of original ideas for scary stuff. I hope these short but gripping books keep coming forever.
