1. The Haunted Martyr - Kenneth Cameron

Largeprint Our price: £19.50  - Currently in stock

The HAUNTED MARTYR plunges the American novelist Denton into the world of turn-of-the-century spiritualism, most of which is sham but which includes some very real death. It is the winter of 1902-1903. Denton has brought his lover, Janet Striker, to Naples, Italy, to recover from a near-fatal attack of typhus. Denton is using the advance from a book to pay his expenses: the book centers on spiritualism and the supernatural in Naples. (Several seances are with Eusapia Paladino, a real historical figure and an object of study by England's Society for Psychical Research.) Denton intends to write a light travel book on spiritualists, ghosts, legends and horrors, and on Naples itself. But when he tries to rent a newly-renovated palazzo and is told by the agent that he can rent it for free if he dares first spend a night there, he knows the place must be haunted. He and Janet duly see an apparition of a tall, long-armed woman, an apparition which leads inevitably to the discovery of a real body, to the story of an eccentric English peer with a terrible secret and the involvement of the Comorro - the Neapolitan mafia.

Bitter Creek was as deserted and quiet as a cemetery. Conagher could feel eyes were watching him in the dark as he rode through. Suddenly, all hell broke loose and he became the target for a group of vigilantes so crazed for blood that they never suspected that their target was the wrong man. As he threw himself from the saddle, Owen Conagher felt something tug at his left side. Gunfire exploded all around him. He saw powder flashes off to his left and above him as well as from within the barn. He knew he had been hit. There was a stickiness at his side, at the bottom of his ribcage. His leg, at first numb, telegraphed hot flashes of pain as he drove himself across the dirt floor. He was cut-off, surrounded and caught in a crossfire. Unless he wanted to leave the barn feet first, Conagher had to think fast, act faster…

But he'd come six weeks too late. According to stories he'd been told, Jim was trampled to death by a milling crowd of cattle. Feeling for a while now that someone was following him, Trev turned off the road to watch his back trail from the cover of some trees. His attention was diverted when he heard shots coming from the direction of old Joe Fineran’s place, then saw two riders galloping past him heading towards Rawdon. Tempted to follow the riders, he decided to check on Joe first. He found Joe, who lived long enough to tell him it was Red Fogarty who shot him. Trev rode into Rawdon with the look of a hunter. He had come to kill Fogarty for killing the unarmed Joe Fineran in cold blood. When that was done, there was the matter of his brother’s ranch, of the beautiful woman who now ran it, of her lawyer who seemed a little too cozy with the new widow, and of the son of a reptile who ramrodded her crew.
