Rudyard Kipling's story, set in 1880s India, recounts the story of Dr. Heatherlegh's patient, Jack Pansay, after a failed romance and slow decline of the woman as she slowly and pitiably fades in sadness to her death while he falls deeply in love with another woman. Yet in the time following this, Pansay is increasingly haunted by Agnes Keith-Wessington as she begins appearing - again and again - in a ghostly rickshaw that only he can see.

Dr. Heatherlegh kindly takes Pansay into his care to save him from what he is convinced is a powerful delusion driven by overwork and guilt. But to Jack Pansay, it is all too real as he ponders his fate.

    " Just a bit of nothing compared to the amazing Kim, but a pleasant enough handful of stories. Sadly, nothing really captivating though. The title story is probably the best of the bunch, so if it doesn't grab you, probably best to spend your time reading something better. "

    " My 2nd favorite book after Kim. Absolute must-read if you've traveled to or wanted to have traveled to India. Includes "The Man Who Would Be King," and yes, the short story is 87 times better than the movie. "
