    A founding father of the American conservative movement, Russell Kirk (1918–94) was also a renowned and bestselling writer of fiction. Kirk’s focus was the ghost story, or “ghostly tale” – a “decayed art” of which he considered himself a “last remaining master.” Old House of Fear, Kirk’s first novel, revealed this mastery at work. Its 1961 publication was a sensation, outselling all of Kirk’s other books combined, including The Conservative Mind, his iconic study of American conservative thought. A native of Michigan, Kirk set Old House of Fear in the haunted isles of the Outer Hebrides, drawing on his time in Scotland as the first American to earn a doctorate of letters from the University of St. Andrews. The story concerns Hugh Logan, an attorney sent by an aging American industrialist to Carnglass to purchase his ancestral island and its castle called the Old House of Fear. On the island, Logan meets Mary MacAskival, a red-haired ingénue and love interest, and the two face off against Dr. Edmund Jackman, a mystic who has the island under his own mysterious control. This new edition features an introduction by James Panero, Executive Editor of The New Criterion.

    When a dead woman is found floating in the pool of a fashionable Fort Lauderdale home, police lieutenant Kenneth Kelly already knows this isn’t going to be a simple homicide. The house belongs to the late Dr. Fredrick Rhineman, a cunning mastermind whose devious scheme resulted in multiple murder victims...and left a dangerous chemical formula and ten million dollars in cash unaccounted for.
     
    It seems someone is still looking for the formula and the money. So when the dead woman’s husband wants answers and a PI, Kelly calls in Jake Wayde, who worked the previous case. Rhineman’s son, Jeffery, has disappeared and is on the run: He’s reneged on a deal to sell the deadly formula to Middle Eastern operatives. And since he’s now suspected of having both the formula and the cash, Kelly and Wayde need to find Jeffery before the vengeful Palestinians and Iranians do.
     
    The FBI soon becomes involved as Wayde and Kelly race to follow the twisting trail of clues—and dead bodies—that may lead to Jeffery’s whereabouts. Can they stay one step ahead of the killers, find Jeffery, and keep the deadly chemical formula from falling into the wrong hands?
