THE LEROUGE CASE

By Emile Gaboriau

CHAPTER I.

On Thursday, the 6th of March, 1862, two days after Shrove Tuesday, five women belonging to the village of La Jonchere presented themselves at the police station at Bougival.

They stated that for two days past no one had seen the Widow Lerouge, one of their neighbours, who lived by herself in an isolated cottage. They had several times knocked at the door, but all in vain. The window shutters as well as the door were closed; and it was impossible to obtain even a glimpse of the interior.

This silence, this sudde...

Carnacki, The Ghost Finder –by: William Hope Hodgson

Thomas Carnacki was a detective of the supernatural, created for a series of short stories by Wiliam Hope Hodgson.

The Wanderer

This is the fourth and final novel by Fanny Burney, the author of Evelina, Cecilia, and Camilla. "Who is "Miss Ellis?" Why did she board a ship from France to England at the beginning of the French revolution?

But she always comforts herself by reminding herself that it's better than "what might have been..." This is not only a mystery, not at all. It's also a romance which reminds readers of novels by Jane Austen. Published in 1814, the same year as Mansfield Par...
