Two classic mystery thrillers are reprinted in this volume.
You'll Be Sorry!: A brief message, written in blood-red script, bluntly warned pretty college co-ed Kate Archer not to accept her old school friend June Gladstone’s invitation to visit with June and her wealthy and eccentric family at Valley Farm. But visit Valley Farm is just what Kate did—and when she saw that ghastly bleeding thing on the terrace she was very sorry indeed that she had gone to Mr. Gladstone’s. Plunged into a miasma of mystery and maniacal horror at the remote Wisconsin estate, Kate will need to keep all her wits about her if she means to survive! Fortunately Professor Hatfield, who recently solved those diabolical mutilation murders of young women on the campus at Woodside, is vacationing nearby. The professor knows a thing or two about maniacs. . . .
You Leave Me Cold!: Just how did Ronny Travers die, alone and bedridden in his room on the frigid third floor of Dr. Chardwicke’s sprawling old house in Woodside? The once highly esteemed scientist assures his new boarder—handsome medical student John Frazer, late of the U.S. Navy—that nothing sinister is afoot in the house’s halls, but has Dr. Chardwicke ever really recovered from that nervous breakdown he had a decade ago? John’s uncle, Professor Hatfield, who recently untangled that unspeakable affair at Valley Farm and by his own admission has a peculiar taste for the macabre, has his doubts. What deathly menace waits within the Chardwicke house—and will the fatally inquisitive John Frazer become its next victim?
Golden-age mystery historian Curt Evans provides a bibliographic introduction.
