When novelist Theo Kendal inherits the remote Norfolk house where his cousin Charmery was murdered, he believes it will bring him closer to the truth about her death. It will also be the ideal place to finish his new book. But the bleak Fenn House is a lonely and sometimes uncomfortable place to spend the winter. And the strangest thing is that Theo's new novel seems to be writing itself - and heading in an unplanned direction. Theo finds himself describing a young boy called Matthew who lives in constant fear of a visit from the cold-eyed men. Struggling to understand the dangerous secrets that surround him and his family, Matthew inhabits a terrifying world where people die in macabre circumstances, where they can be imprisoned without trial or reason, their identities wiped from the world forever. And then Theo discovers that Matthew and his family really existed, part of a dark and violent segment of recent history that threatens to reach out across the years to tear his life apart. And somehow it all connects to the death of his cousin Charmery.

"Lost Court" repeated Frances. "What is that?" The wizened face of the old man suddenly changed, and lost its little polite, three-cornered smile. "Oh, well, madam," he answered reluctantly, "it's a nickname we have in the countryside for Queen's Quadrangles; but it slipped my tongue, madam, I assure you, as I would not wish to fail in respect to her ladyship." "But why are you failing in respect to her ladyship by giving the place that name?" Frances persisted. "On account of the story, madam. Sir Digby in his life pooh-poohed it, so I've heard and as for her ladyship, she can't bear it, folks say." "What is the story?" asked Frances, though her daughter's eyes were disapproving. Dolores could not have told why, but vaguely it seemed to her there was a kind of treachery to the sad lady of Queen's Quadrangles in asking these questions of a gossiping old man at a village inn. "Strange you've never heard it, madam, knowing something of the place, as you do," said the landlord. "It's not come to your ears, then, Queen's Quadrangles is sometimes called the House of the Lost Court?" Frances shook her head. "That's a strange name," she commented. "What can it mean?" "Why, only there was supposed to be, in the old days, three courts instead of two. The house was built in that fashion with three quadrangles, so to speak, one with a fountain, one with four cypresses, and one with...nobody knows what. But, of course, it's only a tale, madam, and a scandalous tale in some ways. Folks say the Spaniards brought over by the grand don who made the house, in Queen Mary's and her Consort Philip's day, babbled about that third court, and the grandee's real reason for having it. And they say, too, it was known to exist, for several generations at least. Afterwards but then it seemed to disappear in some miraculous manner, or else the house was altered before the memory of those who write histories of big houses, and so the court was finally done away with. Only the name and the story of it has never been forgotten." We are pleased to present this easier-to-read, specially formatted Classic Mystery Story for your Reading Pleasure.

Seventeen-year-old Marianna Bertagnoli is miserable... Not only did her father abandon her five years ago, now she's being uprooted and forced to move with her mother and new stepdad to a creepy Victorian house they inherited in the even creepier town of Flocksdale. Flocksdale has an evil, ugly past-and history has a way of repeating itself... Marianna notices some strange qualities about her new home, and soon realizes she's living in none other than the infamous House of Horrors. That's right, the very house where the demented Garrett family ran a drug ring, leading to the kidnappings and murders of forty young girls. The dark energy of the town begins to rise again... Within a week of moving in, Marianna's mother disappears, one of her small group of new friends is found murdered, and she's attacked by a man wearing a hideous clown mask. As she searches for answers, Marianna wonders if the malevolence still lingers, somehow alive...and how her stepdad came to own the House of Horrors. Unsure who to trust, Marianna turns to Wendi Wise, a survivor of the Garretts' crimes... Caught up in twisted family ties and surrounded by deceit, Marianna is targeted by a new generation of evil. Doubly imprisoned-in her own body and in the real house of the lost girls-Marianna needs Wendi's help to unravel the bizarre history of Flocksdale. But will Marianna survive long enough to bring the evil to light? Or will she be trapped in the house of the lost girls forever?

In spring 2011, Anthony Shadid was one of four New York Times reporters captured in Libya, cuffed and beaten, as that country was seized by revolution. When he was freed, he went home. Not to Boston or Beirut where he lived or to Oklahoma City, where his Lebanese-American family had settled. Instead, he returned to his great-grandfather's estate in Lebanon, a house that, over three years earlier, Shadid had begun to rebuild. House of Stone is the story of a battle-scarred home and a war correspondent's jostled spirit, and of how reconstructing the one came to fortify the other. Shadid creates a mosaic of past and present, tracing the house's renewal alongside his family's flight from Lebanon and resettlement in America. He memorializes a lost world and provides profound insights into this volatile landscape. House of Stone is an unforgettable meditation on war, exile, rebirth and the universal yearning for home.

This early work by Richard Harding Davis was originally published in the early 20th century and we are now republishing it with a brand new introductory biography. 'The Lost House' is a short story by this famous war correspondent. Davis attended Lehigh University and Johns Hopkins University, but was asked to leave both due to neglecting his studies in favour socialising. During the Second Boer War in South Africa, Davis was a leading correspondent of the conflict. He saw the war first-hand from both parties perspectives and documented it in his publication 'With Both Armies' (1900). He wrote widely from locations such as the Caribbean, Central America, and even from the perspective of the Japanese forces during the Russo-Japanese War. Davis died following a heart attack on 11th April, 1916, at the age of 51.
