Publication: HarperCollinsPublishers, 2016, London
First edition. Signed by the author on the title page. As new, unread copy in dust jacket. One of the best historical mystery writers, Andrew Taylor has a knack for digging deep into his subjects and pulling out fascinating details. In Fireside Gothic he dazzles with three novellas that show he's capable of so much more. "Broken Voices" follows the adventures of two young boys as they try to prove the legends of an eerie old cathedral. "The Leper House" is a take on the classic "here-by-night-gone-by-morning" tale--with a twist all its own. And "The Scratch" is a wholly original story that merges contemporary themes with gothic tradition. Three tales of fear, retribution, and death.
