Not everything that goes bump in the night brings gifts ...

As the nights draw in, the veil between worlds thins, and all sorts of ghosts and ghouls come tumbling in. In the shadows, under the bed, in wind-whipped snowy landscapes and in rooms lit by guttering candles, the dead of winter are waiting for us ... and their hearts are cold as ice.

From the mysterious occupant of an ancient tomb to the Christmas visitor who is troubled by violent dreams, these are ten ghost stories from the masters of the genre that will chill your blood and haunt your dreams through the darkest months of the year.

With stories from Lennox Robinson, M. Burrage, Ruth Rendell, E.F. Benson, Arthur Conan Doyle, H. Russell Wakefield, M.R. James, Margaret Irwin, Algernon Blackwood and W.W. Jacobs

MEDIA REVIEWS

With Cecily Gayford in charge, we are on safe ground - Daily Mail

Looking forward to Christmas? [The Vintage Murder series] is a fine way to start it. It's a cracker - Amy Myers

Praise for Vintage Murder series - :

Has everything you might want ... take this little book to the beach [and] relax in the sun while reading of battered corpses - Craig Brown, Mail on Sunday

An excellent collection of short stories by ten top-class writers - Marcel Berlins, The Times Books of the Year

Perfect for a quick fix of golden-age crime ... this collection of short winter chills is well worth reading by candlelight before turning in on Christmas Eve - Janice Hallett, author of The Appeal and The Twyford Code, The Sunday Times

Short, clever and puzzling murder tales test the brains of the most avid crime reader ... delectable - On Magazine

An impressive tome by some great names ... there isn't actually a bum note in the entire collection, not a single one you could skip through and not miss it - which is quite some feat. To paraphrase Nick Cook's famous Crimewatch sign off, just don't have nightmares after reading it. - Sarah Morgan, On Magazine

Have to admit to being disappointed by this collection. I find ghost stories rather dull and there are too many in this set of ten stories for me. I've enjoyed the other collections in this series but this one... More
