The Turn of the Screw: And Other Stories by Henry James Jr.

A young governess is sent to a great country house to care for two orphaned children. At first Flora and Miles seem to be model pupils but gradually the governess begins to suspect that something is very wrong with them. As she sets out to uncover the corrupt secrets hidden in the house, she is increasingly convinced that something evil is watching her. Several other of Henry James’s most gruesome horror stories are also included, among them The Jolly Corner, Owen Wingrave, The Private Life, The Real Right Thing, and Sir Edmund Orme.
