A National Bestseller, a New York Times Notable Book, and an Entertainment Weekly Best Book of the Year

It's the summer of 1854, and London is just emerging as one of the first modern cities in the world. But lacking the infrastructure-garbage removal, clean water, sewers-necessary to support its rapidly expanding population, the city has become the perfect breeding ground for a terrifying disease no one knows how to cure. As the cholera outbreak takes hold, a physician and a local curate are spurred to action-and ultimately solve the most pressing medical riddle of their time.

In a triumph of multidisciplinary thinking, Johnson illuminates the intertwined histories of the spread of disease, the rise of cities, and the nature of scientific inquiry, offering both a riveting history and a powerful explanation of how it has shaped the world we live in.

Ghost Stories of Edith Wharton (Tales of Mystery & the Supernatural)

Traumatised by ghost stories in her youth, Pulitzer Prize winning author Edith Wharton (1862 -1937) channelled her fear and obsession into creating a series of spine-tingling tales filled with spirits beyond the grave and other supernatural phenomena. While claiming not to believe in ghosts, paradoxically she did confess that she was frightened of them. Wharton imbues this potent irrational and imaginative fear into her ghostly fiction to great effect. In this unique collection of finely wrought tales Wharton demonstrates her mastery of the ghost story genre. Amongst the many supernatural treats within these pages you will encounter a married farmer bewitched by a dead girl; a ghostly bell which saves a woman's reputation; the weird spectral eyes which terrorise the midnight hours of an elderly aesthete; the haunted man who receives letters from his dead wife; and the frightening power of a doppelganger which foreshadows a terrible tragedy. Compelling, rich and strange, the ghost stories of Edith Wharton, like vintage wine, have matured and grown more potent with the passing years.

Whether you believe it or not, whether you accept it or not, there are some things in the world that cannot be attributed to anything other than paranormal activity. Some spirits have been through tragedy so heartbreaking, they are trapped within that singular instance that stole their lives away – they relive that moment over and over and over. The world is an infinite place. We don’t entirely understand it – we believe in what we see and what we hear and try to make sense of that alone. Things that are easy to quantify, easy to explain with science – some of them are frightening in their intensity, such as a natural disaster, but these things don’t keep us up at night from fear. And then, there are those things that we cannot understand. The complexity of the human mind is such that what it cannot perceive or measure, it fears. And such things do exist – we can hear them, feel them, sense them. But we cannot quantify them, because their behavior does not remain consistent and there seems to be no rational explanation to them. In this book, we will take a look at the different places and spots on our planet where these inexplicable things exist. Everyone who has been to these places has come back changed; some have even gone just to see for themselves what it’s like; their accounts are disturbing...

A haunted house turns everything that is supposed to be comforting and familiar into instruments of terror - attics, nurseries, and parlors become settings for the macabre, family tragedies repeat themselves over and over again. Yet, we are still drawn to the stories a haunted house has to tell. There is something fascinating in how a house becomes a home for spirits...

Each of the homes, in this book, has a story to tell. They were all built with the intention of providing a safe shelter for a family. But along the way, things began to fall apart.

They have been the sights of mass murder, torture, suicide, and tragic accidents. Families were built and destroyed within their walls, business dynasties crumbled, and justice failed to be served. These dark stains in the homes’ histories turned them into structures that were symbolic of incredible tragedy.

Many of the these homes remained vacant for many years since they could no longer fulfil their original purpose, but they have never entirely uninhabited. The forces and entities that wander their halls have made their presence known to those who’ve investigated, restored, stayed in, or lived in all of these buildings…
