From the mailbag—spooky novels

halloweenOooooh...!  Halloween’s coming up. A reader asked me to come up with ideas for spooky mystery novels. The writer herself suggested Diane Setterfield’s The Thirteenth Tale. Good one!

Here are some I came up with—mostly older works:

 

  • Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier, 1938  (an all-time favorite)
  • Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte, 1847  (the mad women in the attic)
  • The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins, 1859-60 (scrumptious)
  • The Hound of the Baskervilles by Conan Doyle, 1091-02 (the great Sherlock and Watson)
  • Twilight by Stephanie Meyer, 2003 (we have guides for the complete vampire series)
  • Anything scary by Stephen King… Any particular suggestions from anyone?

If anyone has some other ideas, let us know.  We’d love to hear from you.
