ONE DREADFUL NIGHT
Ronald S. L. Harding
Ronald S. L. Harding was a master writer of dark mystery novels steeped in supernatural suggestion. Little is known about the author, and for many years his books have been sought-after rarities. Dancing Tuatara Press is proud to begin the exhumation of Harding's weird mysteries with the republication of One Dreadful Night.
Harding presents a mystery that is deftly woven into the underlying web of supernatural horror. From the moment that we meet the eccentric family of Robert Armstrong, a young and reclusive man obsessed with secret scientific experiments, Dora Owen, a visitor who becomes romantically attached to Robert, and witness the manifestation of a mysterious presence which lurks in the family home "Restormal," the novel builds gradually to a climatic resolution of sheer terror . . . until its shocking denouement.
One Dreadful Night is part of that small group of novels, such as Mark Hansom's The Beasts of Brahm, wherein the elements of the mystery novel and the supernatural tale are blended seamlessly to create a genuine thriller that will keep the reader turninq pages while leaving all the lights on!
