Um seine Freunde zu beeindrucken, steigt Tom nachts in die Villa des exzentrischen Schriftstellers Marc Glick-Pitney ein. Doch dann wird aus der Mutprobe grauenhafter Ernst: Der Hausherr sitzt tot an seinem Schreibtisch. Ihm fehlen beide Augen - und vor ihm liegt sein letztes Manuskript. Tom nimmt den Papierstapel mit nach Hause und beginnt, wie besessen darin zu lesen. Mit jeder Seite werden die Schrecken, die Glick-Pitney beschrieben hat, realer. Und bald wird Tom sogar in der Schule von finsteren Dämonen bedroht. Verliert er den Verstand? Oder ist das Buch ein Tor für das Böse?

Attorney Hugh Logan leaves Canada for Scotland to negotiate the purchase of Carnglass Island and the castle Old House of Fear for his employer, Duncan MacAskival. Logan is continually thwarted and threatened on his journey. But no matter how bad his travels, his arrival onto the island brings much worse trouble. Carnglass is under the control of evil genius Dr. Edmund Jackman, a Soviet-educated political revolutionary convinced that Logan is a spy who must die. Will Jackman's plot be thwarted? Will Logan be able to rescue the lovely niece of the noble owner of Old House? Will anyone get off the island alive? Debuting in the 1960s, Old House of Fear was Russell Kirk's most popular book, selling more than all his other books combined. Yet this Gothic tale is more than just a fascinating work of fiction. As in all of Kirk's stories, a deeper meaning emerges -- in this case, a satirization of Marxism and liberalism -- demonstrating the acute sense of the moral that sets Kirk apart from other genre writers.

The monkey will be followed by a wooden snake, and then a wooden rooster, after which the colonel will be swiftly murdered. Only one man stands between Li Yu Ka and his death: genius sleuth, Ali Imran.
