THE FIRST HAUNTED BOOKSHOP MYSTERY FROM NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR CLEO COYLE—WRITING AS ALICE KIMBERLY “Part cozy and part hard-boiled detective novel with traces of the supernatural, The Ghost and Mrs. McClure is just a lot of fun.”—The Mystery Reader Young widow Penelope Thornton-McClure and her old Aunt Sadie are making ends meet by managing a mystery book shop—a quaint Rhode Island landmark rumored to be haunted. Pen may not believe in ghosts, but she does believe in good publicity—like nabbing Timothy Brennan for a book signing. But soon after the bestselling thriller writer reveals a secret about the store’s link to a 1940s murder, he keels over dead—and right in the middle of the store’s new Community Events space. Who gives Mrs. McClure the first clue that it was murder? The bookstore’s full-time ghost—a PI murdered on the very spot more than fifty years ago. Is he a figment of Pen’s overactive imagination? Or is the oddly likable fedora-wearing specter the only hope Pen has to solve the crime? You can bet your everlasting life on it...

New York, 1919. Roger Mifflin hat seine größte Leidenschaft, das Lesen, zum Beruf gemacht. In seinem Antiquariat in Brooklyn findet man ihn dort, wo der Tabakrauch am dichtesten ist.

Von Werbemaßnahmen für sein Geschäft will er allerdings nichts wissen, und so lässt er den jungen Aubrey Gilbert, angestellt bei der Grey Matter Agency, ziemlich abblitzen, als der ihm seine Dienste anbietet. Dennoch freunden sich die beiden an, und bald kommt Gilbert täglich ins Geschäft.

Florence Green erwirbt in Hardborough, einem verschlafenen Dorf an der Küste Ostenglands, das Old House als zukünftiges Domizil für ihre Buchhandlung. Dass das Gebäude anscheinend von einem Poltergeist besessen und bis auf die Grundmauern feucht ist, bringt sie von ihrem Vorhaben ebensowenig ab wie die Tatsache, dass sie von finanziellen Dingen keine Ahnung hat. Voller Schwung stürzt sie sich in die Vorbereitungen und stattet ihre Buchhandlung liebevoll aus. Die Einwohner des kleinen Städtchens begegnen dem Unternehmen zunächst mit Skepsis, bald stellen sich jedoch erste Stammkunden ein. Als Florence Green aber dann ein gerade erschienenes Buch eines bis dahin unbekannten Autors, Vladimir Nabokov, verkauft, ist die Aufregung groß und weitet sich zu einem Skandal aus ...

The family history of the Russells of Georgia is a saga of the Westward Movement during the middle fifty years of the nineteenth century. The "Russell boys," as prospectors and miners, moved with the frontier as it followed fresh discoveries of gold, from Georgia to California to Colorado. Then, after the interlude of the Civil War, they settled in the new territories, turning their abilities and ruggedness of character to the development of careers on other frontiers—ranching, farming, land development, medicine—in Montana, Colorado, and Texas. Elma Dill Russell Spencer, a descendant of one of these unusual brothers, relates their story as she learned it from family tradition transmitted by Grandma Russell, from family letters, from public documents, and from historical accounts of the exciting era. The reader of her narrative sees the evolution of Western society in the vast wasteland of mountain and prairie from the viewpoint of the people who were making history, people too engrossed in their own problems to realize the far-reaching significance of their achievement. The reader sees the struggle to wrest gold from the streams and hills with primitive tools and techniques; the development of tent villages into populous towns affording most of the comforts of the East; the evolution of a code of mining laws, of protection from violence and crime; the building of schools; the emergence of sectional problems and divided loyalties; the Civil War, mostly through noncombatants' eyes; the progressive changes in transportation, until the railroads tied the West to the East. The reader also encounters Indians, who ride in and out of these pages, and other fascinating types of characters associated with "the wild, varied, and always unpredictable" frontier. The odyssey of the Russell brothers as they struggle home to Georgia from Union-sympathizing Denver is particularly full of action, with tense moments in the account of narrowly escaped death—at the hands of Indians, through the ravages of disease, and from the enmity of Yankee foes. This book was originally published as Gold Country in 1958; the University of Texas Press edition was completely revised and first published in 1966.
