I Met a Man Who Wasn't There archiveThis chilling supernatural-thriller questions the greatest mystery of all - life after death. Edgar Rhyme, once a famous psychic with an ardent flock of followers, now lives alone in a cluttered upstairs flat in a fading northern seaside town with his beloved jazz music. As he mourns the loss of his wife, Edgar attempts to block out all contact with the spirit world but something is trying to break through to him. Amanda Schilling, an investigative journalist with a chequered career, wants to interview Edgar for a high-profile series she is writing about British obsessions. She feels Edgar will be the perfect subject for a piece about spiritualism. Edgar is cautious, but the payment Amanda offers persuades him to talk. As Edgar tells her the story of his life, she becomes aware that a frightening force has reached Edgar before she has and will use him to unearth her own terrible secret. The mismatched pair soon realise why they have been drawn together. As they discover the importance of the decisions they will make during the long dark night, an eerie image of a small boy appears in the mottled mirror above Edgar
