When the local mailman inherits a haunted house and demands an exorcism, Pen must act fast to save her favorite ghost in this Haunted Bookshop mystery from New York Times bestselling author Cleo Coyle, writing as Alice Kimberly. Bookshop owner Penelope Thornton-McClure didn’t believe in ghosts—until she met the spirit of hard-boiled 1940s detective Jack Shepard. And when Pen’s friend and mailman, Seymour Tarnish, gets into deep trouble, Pen not only believes in her ghost—she also thinks he can help... An elderly lady of leisure has been found dead on posh Larchmont Avenue, her will recently, and suspiciously, revised to name Seymour as heir to her mansion. Just as eyes turn to him as the murderer—and Seymour gets busy settling into his ritzy digs—the mansion’s ghosts begin plaguing him. So he hires a team of parapsychologists to exorcise all the spirits from the town of Quindicott—and that includes Jack Shepard. Now Pen must act fast—because losing Jack scares Pen more than rattling chains and cold spots...

When a late night storm drives a young couple to take refuge in an old abandoned mansion, it isn't long before they discover that they've entered the lair of 999 haunts who are in no way happy to see them. In the madness that follows, Tom and Carol are separated and on their own; and as they feverishly seek for one another among the endless halls and countless rooms they must also avoid getting caught by the denizens of this dark abode – half of which are dying to have them for dinner and the other half seek to banish them to the Netherworld forever and take dominion of our physical world. Will they escape the clutches of the terrifying Mdm. Leota and her nasty daughter, or will they become permanent residents in the realm of the disembodied?Originally published in 2002 as “a paragraph a day” project in the forum of a fan website, Cunningham has cleverly pieced together and reformed the story into a full length novel which fans have praised as suitable for the big screen. Full of thrills, chills, laughs, and even hidden Haunted Mansion trivia that only the most diehard Mansion fan will catch, this story, in the literary prerogative of the author, leans more on the darker and “grown up” perspective of the famous theme park attraction. In Walt's day it would have garnished a PG rating. Nevertheless, it is not as explosively controversial as the racist, sexist, polygamous, adulterous and necrophilial themes found in Disney's own motion picture about the beloved Mansion.

We love the Haunted Mansion as an entertaining dark ride, but does it also resonate with us for deeper reasons? K. R. Bailey suggests that it answers a fundamental need to approach the topic of death in a manner we find comfortable in what has been termed a "death-denying" culture. Bailey reaches into the Victorian era and its Celebration of Death to identify symbols that are close enough to have a dark meaning, but distant enough not to threaten, and discusses their use in the works of Edward Gorey and Tim Burton, and Disney's Haunted Mansion ride.
