The rather extraordinary story revealed by the experiments of the Neighborhood Club have been until now a matter only of private record. But it seems to me, as an active participant in the investigations, that they should be given to the public; not so much for what they will add to the existing data on psychical research, for from that angle they were not unusual, but as yet another exploration into that still uncharted territory, the human mind
The red lamp by Mary Roberts Rinehart( Book )

"An all-around skeptic when it comes to the supernatural, literature professor William Porter gives no credence to claims that Twin Towers, the seaside manor he's just inherited, might be haunted. He finds nothing mysterious about the conditions in which his Uncle Horace died, leaving the property behind; it was a simple case of cardiac arrest, nothing more. So, though his wife, more attuned to spiritual disturbance, refuses to occupy the main house, Porter convinces her to spend a summer at the estate and stay in the lodge elsewhere on the grounds. But not long after they arrive, Porter sees the evidence of haunting that the townspeople speak of: a shadowy figure illuminated by the red light of Horace's writing lamp, the very light that shone on the scene of his death. And though he isn't convinced that it is a spirit and not a man, Porter knows that, whichever it is, the figure is responsible for the rash of murders--first of sheep, then of people--that breaks out across the countryside. Somehow, though, the suspect eludes him every time and, in his pursuit, Porter risks implicating himself in the very crimes he hopes to solve."--Amazon

Ralph Leslie, a young doctor recovering from illness, yearned for something different - adventure, mystery, romance. So he signed up as a steward on the Ella, a pleasure boat being outfitted as an elegant yacht. Elsa Lee, invited on a voyage by the ship's wealthy owner, found herself boarding the vessel with excited thoughts equal to Ralph's. Yet neither could have guessed that their adventure would be heightened by fear and tainted by blood. As passengers and crew fell victim to nightly visits from an ax-bearing murderer, the Ella reeled between suspects. Was it the ship's owner who mastered this evil...his wife...the temperamental captain or the rebellous crew? Perhaps Ralph Leslie had his own plans for the Ella - or Elsa Lee herself
