Book excerpt: THE MAN WAS HARD TO RESIST… Aidan Brodie's sensual stare could seduce a woman almost against her will. Samantha Giancarlo found herself to be no exception. Her reporter's instincts screamed at her to stay far away. But fate—in the form of a woman in black—had united them for a reason…. An explosive interview with the stranger thrust Sam into the thick of a murder investigation. And when her search revealed truths that struck too close to home, she was forced to heed other, more womanly instincts…. She had no choice but to accept the safety of Aidan's strong embrace—and the protection he was only too eager to provide.

Arthur Kipps, a junior solicitor, is summoned to attend the funeral of Mrs Alice Drablow, the sole inhabitant of Eel Marsh House. The house stands at the end of a causeway, wreathed in fog and mystery, but it is not until he glimpses a wasted young woman, dressed all in black, at the funeral, that a creeping sense of unease begins to take hold, a feeling deepened by the reluctance of the locals to talk of the woman in black - and her terrible purpose.

When the scheming, indomitable brain of Sigsbee Manderson was scattered by a shot from an unknown hand, that world lost nothing worth a single tear; it gained something memorable in a harsh reminder of the vanity of such wealth as this dead man had piled up-without making one loyal friend to mourn him, without doing an act that could help his memory to the least honor. But when the news of his end came, it seemed to those living in the great vortices of business as if the earth, too, shuddered under a blow. In all the lurid commercial history of his country there had been no figure that had so imposed itself upon the mind of the trading world. He had a niche apart in its temples.

Book excerpt: In an age of adventuresses, beautiful Lola Montez was perhaps the most flamboyant, notorious and mysterious of them all. An intimate of Franz Liszt and Victor Hugo, of Chopin and George Sand, in her youth she played an important part in Bavaria's history as confidante - and, some said, mistress - of King Ludwig I of Bavaria. Then she danced her way through the music halls of Europe and America to the little mining town of Grass Valley, California, where she began by shocking the more circumspect and ended by creating something of a salon. A controversial figure always, Lola was the center of political and even religious quarrels in the stormy days of her life in Munich when she was Ludwig's protegee. She caused him to lose his throne in 1848, and the battle that broke into flames around her head sent her fleeing to England, where she married a youth of wealth and social position, only to have his family bring a charge of bigamy against her. Her fame had grown with her notoriety and next she came to New York under contract to tour America. Her stage career was stormy. Her daring dances, including the famous 'Spider Dance,' evoked admiration from some, outraged others - but no one ever ignored Lola. When her first husband died she married a burly California newspaperman, Pat Hull, with whom she went to Grass Valley, where she long had owned shares in a gold mine. Through a body of letters from Grass Valley miners made available for the first time, Mrs. Holdredge has been able to reconstruct an intimate and detailed account of this little-known California period of Lola's life as part of an over-all biography which brings light and life to the career of one of history's most fabulous adventuresses.

Book excerpt: In 1862, a young newlywed is executed for treason trying to free her husband, a Confederate cavalry officer, from an island prisoner of war camp in Boston Harbor. For years after, soldiers and later tourists swear they have seen a Lady in Black robes wandering the fortress in search of her dead husband, who accidently died by her own hand during the escape attempt. In present times, when a teacher is murdered while taking his history class on a field trip to the old fort, now a national historical monument, witnesses claim to have seen a mysterious person in black near the murder scene. Investigation of the murder falls to the Massachusetts State Police and a veteran detective who is recovering from an opioid addiction and concealing a dark secret which drives him to seek psychological help. The search for the killer leads the detective and his female partner to discover a plot by a Mexican cartel to use the island fortress as a distribution point to flood the American Northeast with counterfeit opioids. Skeptical of ghost stories, the detective, Vince Magliore, nevertheless encounters some inexplicable events while on the island fortress, and in a gun battle with cartel operatives, may have been saved by the intervention of a shadowy apparition. Urged by his psychologist, Magliore travels back to California to confess to his old boss, the chief of his former police department, the secret he has been hiding. The chief’s response to Magliore’s confession is totally unexpected.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The supernatural has become extraordinarily popular in literature, television, and film. Vampires, zombies, werewolves, witches, and wizard have become staples of entertainment industries, and many of these figures have received extensive critical attention. But one figure has remained in the shadows--the female ghost. Inherently liminal, often literally invisible, the female ghost has nevertheless appeared in all genres. Subversive Spirits: The Female Ghost in British and American Popular Culture brings this figure into the light, exploring her cultural significance in a variety of media from 1926 to 2014. Robin Roberts argues that the female ghost is well worth studying for what she can tell us about feminine subjectivity in cultural contexts. Subversive Spirits examines appearances of the female ghost in heritage sites, theater, Hollywood film, literature, and television in the United States and the United Kingdom. What holds these disparate female ghosts together is their uncanny ability to disrupt, illuminate, and challenge gendered assumptions. As with other supernatural figures, the female ghost changes over time, especially responding to changes in gender roles. Roberts's analysis begins with comedic female ghosts in literature and film and moves into horror by examining the successful play The Woman in Black and the legend of the weeping woman, La Llorona. Roberts then situates the canonical works of Maxine Hong Kingston and Toni Morrison in the tradition of the female ghost to explore how the ghost is used to portray the struggle and pain of women of color. Roberts further analyzes heritage sites that use the female ghost as the friendly and inviting narrator for tourists. The book concludes with a comparison of the British and American versions of the television hit Being Human, where the female ghost expands her influence to become a mother and savior to all humanity.

Book excerpt: "[A] Stephen Kinglike horror story...A chilling, bloody ghost story that resonates."— Kirkus From the highly acclaimed author of the Bone Witch trilogy comes a chilling story of a Japanese ghost looking for vengeance and the boy who has no choice but to trust her, lauded as a "a fantastically creepy story sure to keep readers up at night" (RT Book Reviews) I am where dead children go. Okiku is a lonely soul. She has wandered the world for centuries, freeing the spirits of the murdered-dead. Once a victim herself, she now takes the lives of killers with the vengeance they're due. But releasing innocent ghosts from their ethereal tethers does not bring Okiku peace. Still she drifts on. Such is her existence, until she meets Tark. Evil writhes beneath the moody teen's skin, trapped by a series of intricate tattoos. While his neighbors fear him, Okiku knows the boy is not a monster. Tark needs to be freed from the malevolence that clings to him. There's just one problem: if the demon dies, so does its host. Suspenseful and creepy, The Girl from the Well is perfect for readers looking for Spooky books for young adults Japanese horror novels Ghost stories for teens East Asian folklore Praise for The Girl from the Well "There's a superior creep factor that is pervasive in every lyrical word of Chupeco's debut, and it's perfect for teens who enjoy traditional horror movies...the story is solidly scary and well worth the read." — Booklist "Chupeco makes a powerful debut with this unsettling ghost story...told in a marvelously disjointed fashion from Okiku's numbers-obsessed point of view, this story unfolds with creepy imagery and an intimate appreciation for Japanese horror, myth, and legend." — Publishers Weekly STARRED review "It hit all the right horror notes with me, and I absolutely recommend it to fans looking for a good scare. " — The Book Smugglers
