Sight Unseen and The Confession

Mary Roberts Rinehart

1921 (1916, 1917)
"The rather extraordinary story revealed by the experiments of the Neighborhood Club have been until now a matter only of private record. But it seems to me, as an active participant in the investigations, that they should be given to the public; not so much for what they will add to the existing data on psychical research, for from that angle they were not unusual, but as yet another exploration into that still uncharted territory, the human mind."

These two early novellas by Mary Roberts Rinehart mix mystery and the occult. The original copyrights are 1916 (Sight Unseen) and 1917 (The Confession) and this compilation into a single book is copyright 1921. In Sight Unseen Rinehart speaks in first person through Horace, a member of the Neighborhood Club. They find the medium they invite for a seance connects them with a murder in a mix of mystery and the occult. In The Confession Miss Agnes and her maid rent a summer home that turns ghostly and mysterious in this gothic suspense tale.
