The Man with a Shadow

by George Manville Fenn

A young surgeon develops a scientific theory on the subject of "death by shock." This he considers to be "a blot upon the science of the present day" which ought not to be tolerated; and he does his best to prove that there is no necessity at all for a man to die in that particular way. In the same parish with the doctor is a country curate, of the jocular muscular Christian type, whose two sisters live with him--Mary the good and gentle, and Leo the flighty and violent. In addition to these there are the squire and his brother, who give the curate and his sisters a good deal of trouble.
