Death Lives in the Mansion

Death Lives in the Mansion by Douglas Locke
published by Magnum Books
Copyright 1967


Someone - or something - wanted
Lyman Harpur to die ... die in agony!
Helen Peters watched her patient
in his trance and knew that his soul
was suffering the torment of the
damned ... and the medical doctors
could do nothing to save him!
Their science belonged to the
wrong world. Yet Helen knew that
Lyman Harpur was being murdered
before her very eyes ... and the
would-be killer was his wife!

But which wife?

Was it beautiful Phoebe, current
mistress of the mansion in the
French quarter of New Orleans -
beautiful and vindictive Phoebe?
Or was it Celest, the first Mrs.
Harpur - Celest, who was dead!

I think you answered your own question.

What a fabulous cover. Like something for Night Gallery, but in a good way. No signature and or info inside. I'd love to see the original.
