Mary Elizabeth Braddon's ghost story "The Cold Embrace" is featured this week on BBC Radio 4 Extra, which stars Jonathan Firth (Who can resist this description of the main character: "He was young, handsome, studious, enthusiastic, metaphysical, reckless, unbelieving, heartless"). Episodes can usually be heard for up to a week after broadcast. Those looking for a print copy of "The Cold Embrace" can find it here.
