Shutter - Ramona Emerson Cover Art

Shutter

Shutter by Ramona Emerson

This blood-chilling debut set in New Mexico’s Navajo Nation is equal parts gripping crime thriller, supernatural horror, and poignant portrayal of coming of age on the reservation. Rita Todacheene is a forensic photographer working for the Albuquerque police force. Her excellent photography skills have cracked many cases—she is almost supernaturally good at capturing details. In fact, Rita has been hiding a secret: she sees the ghosts of crime victims who point her toward the clues that other investigators overlook.  As a lone portal back to the living for traumatized spirits, Rita is terrorized by nagging ghosts who won’t let her sleep and who sabotage her personal life. Her taboo and psychologically harrowing ability was what drove her away from the Navajo reservation, where she was raised by her grandmother. It has isolated her from friends and gotten her in trouble with the law.   And now it might be what gets her killed. When Rita is sent to photograph the scene of a supposed suicide on a highway overpass, the furious, discombobulated ghost of the victim—who insists she was murdered—latches onto Rita, forcing her on a quest for revenge against her killers, and Rita finds herself in the crosshairs of one of Albuquerque’s most dangerous cartels. Written in sparkling, gruesome prose, Shutter is an explosive debut from one of crime fiction's most powerful new voices.

Together they hope to rebuild their lives there after Chip, an airline pilot, has to ditch his 70-seat regional jet in Lake Champlain after double engine failure. Unlike the Miracle on the Hudson, however, most of the passengers aboard Flight 1611 die on impact or drown. The body count? Thirty-nine – a coincidence not lost on Chip when he discovers the number of bolts in that basement door. Meanwhile, Emily finds herself wondering about the women in this sparsely populated White Mountain village – self-proclaimed herbalists – and their interest in her fifth-grade daughters.

Or is it her husband, in the wake of the tragedy, whose grip on sanity has become desperately tenuous?    The result is a poignant and powerful ghost story with all the hallmarks readers have come to expect from bestselling novelist Chris Bohjalian: a palpable sense of place, an unerring sense of the demons that drive us, and characters we care about deeply.

The Tiled House - J.S. Le Fanu Cover Art

The Tiled House

The Tiled House Tales of Terror by J. S. Le Fanu by J.S. Le Fanu

The very best of Le Fanu’s supernatural fiction, including such classics as: ‘Schalken the Painter’, ‘Squire Toby's Will’, ‘Mr Justice Harbottle’, ‘The Familiar’, ‘Green Tea’, ‘Madam Crowl’s Ghost’ and ‘The Murdered Cousin’, introduced by genre expert Michael Cox. ‘Sheridan Le Fanu,’ wrote S.M. Ellis in 1916, ‘retains his own special place and fame as the Master of Horror and the Mysterious.’ Today, Le Fanu’s reputation is as high as ever amongst connoisseurs of supernatural and mystery fiction and well deserves the enthusiastic praise lavished on him by some of the most accomplished ghost fiction writers of the twentieth century – including E.F. Benson and M.R. James. Born in 1814, the son of an Anglo-Irish Protestant clergyman, Le Fanu single-handedly created a new kind of fictional ghost story. Gone are the sheeted spooks rattling rusty chains and the peripatetic headless ladies that infest Gothic fiction. In their place Le Fanu created formidably real supernatural presences that emerge from within, as well as invade from without. Le Fanu was the first writer to explore seriously the psychological dimensions of the ghost story; at the same time he was adept at invoking the physical presence of supernatural malevolence. The world in which his characters move is a hostile one, his stories surrounded by an infinity of outer darkness. Private anguish undoubtedly underlies these public fictions. And yet Le Fanu’s stories – be they of ghosts or tales of mystery – are also of the good old-fashioned type, best enjoyed in the sort of setting he himself described – ‘the old-fashioned parlour fire-side and its listening circle of excited faces, and, outside, the wintry blast and the moan of leafless boughs . . .’ Reviews ‘Le Fanu stands absolutely in the first rank as a writer of ghost stories. That is my deliberate verdict.’ M. R. James ‘There was the customary novel by Mr Le Fanu for the bedside; the ideal reading in a country house for the hours after midnight.’ Henry James About the author Joseph Thomas Sheridan Le Fanu was an Irish writer of Gothic tales and mystery novels. He was the leading ghost-story writer of the nineteenth century and central to the development of the genre in the Victorian era. Three of his best-known novels are Uncle Silas, Carmilla and The House by the Churchyard. Michael Cox (1948-2009) was a former editor at Oxford University Press and biographer of the ghost story writer M.R. James. His lifelong passion for Victorian literature led him to edit a number of anthologies, including The Oxford Book of English Ghost Stories. His first novel, The Meaning of Night, was shortlisted for the 2007 Costa First Novel Award.

Second Glance - Jodi Picoult Cover Art

Second Glance

Second Glance A Novel by Jodi Picoult

This breathtaking novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Jodi Picoult asks: Do we love across time, or in spite of it? “Sometimes I wonder....Can a ghost find you, if she wants to?” An intricate tale of love, haunting memories, and renewal, Second Glance begins in current-day Vermont, where an old man puts a piece of land up for sale and unintentionally raises protest from the local Abenaki Indian tribe, who insist it’s a burial ground. When odd, supernatural events plague the town of Comtosook, a ghost hunter is hired by the developer to help convince the residents that there’s nothing spiritual about the property. Enter Ross Wakeman, a suicidal drifter who has put himself in mortal danger time and again. He’s driven his car off a bridge into a lake. He’s been mugged in New York City and struck by lightning in a calm country field. Yet despite his best efforts, life clings to him and pulls him ever deeper into the empty existence he cannot bear since his fiancée’s death in a car crash eight years ago. Ross now lives only for the moment he might once again encounter the woman he loves. But in Comtosook, the only discovery Ross can lay claim to is that of Lia Beaumont, a skittish, mysterious woman who, like Ross, is on a search for something beyond the boundary separating life and death. Thus begins Jodi Picoult’s enthralling and ultimately astonishing story of love, fate, and a crime of passion. Hailed by critics as a “master” storyteller ( The Washington Post ), Picoult once again “pushes herself, and consequently the reader, to think about the unthinkable” (Denver Post). Second Glance, her eeriest and most engrossing work yet, delves into a virtually unknown chapter of American history—Vermont’s eugenics project of the 1920s and 30s—to provide a compelling study of the things that come back to haunt us—literally and figuratively. Do we love across time, or in spite of it?

The Turn of the Screw - Henry James Cover Art

The Turn of the Screw

The Turn of the Screw by Henry James

Henry James famous classic The Turn of the Screw brings riveting, eerie suspense in a tale of ghostly haunting. Written in a way that confounds yet thrills the reader, The Turn of the Screw alternately puzzles and enthrals those who have read it. The protagonist is a governess whose manuscript is read by Douglas, a friend of the unnamed narrator - sent into the countryside to care for two children, Miles and Fiona, she soon begins noticing strange happenings around the country home.  With the children themselves acting strangely, the governess is determined to find the reason behind their behaviour and the oddities of the locality. The figures of a man and a woman appear regularly in the grounds, each appearance driving the curious governess to evermore effort, her aim being to prevent these supernatural forces from keeping their hold on the summer house.  The author preferred to make ghosts more a strange, ethereal part of reality than the stereotypes of the late Victorian era, which would have spectres howling, screaming or behaving violently against the living. James was fixated upon the eerie, out-of-place and atmospheric evil which constituted the ghostly - an interest which is expressed with sublime subtlety in The Turn of the Screw.
