Investigating the occult using deductive reasoning, esoteric knowledge and psychic ability, the Edwardian protagonists of these classic tales tackle haunted houses, diabolic possessions and more earthly deeds of greed, corruption and murder.

Allen Upward's 'Ghost Hunters' series, reprinted in its entirety for the first time since its original appearance in the Royal Magazine (1905-1906), relates the adventures of an estate agent and his secretary as they investigate five haunted properties. Finally, Rose Champion de Crespigny's Norton Vyse helps his clients overcome difficulties of a supernatural variety in six thrilling short stories (1919).
