One foggy evening, the most famous crime specialists in the world meet in an exclusive club, their minds on murder. On the agenda: two tantalizing, unsolved cases of ghostly terror. New York Times bestselling author and unsurpassed master of suspense Barbara Michaels delivers a fireside story in the grand tradition with her latest work, Other Worlds. The smoky room glows with a mix of cigars, brandy, and genius. Those present include Harry Houdini, king of illusion; Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, father of the modern detective novel; Dr. Nandor Fodor, a psychoanalyst of international acclaim; and an elegant writer who can rival them all with her sleuthing talent. These masters of mystery put their minds to a pair of gripping stories of families beset by poltergeistly pranks and bewitched by inexplicable horrors. Gripping puzzles, yes, but the terror is all too vicious and all too real. In the hollows of Tennessee, a family is threatened by a dire spirit whose predictions of despair and death come frighteningly true. In a small Connecticut town, a newly married widow and her children move into her second husband's home to find their lives possessed by an unimaginable demon.For the gathering at the club, a brilliant battle of wits is at hand. Were these villains phantoms from beyond or evildoers of flesh and blood? Each expert has a theory. Which of them is correct? Whether writing as Barbara Michaels or Elizabeth Peters, this author is a master chef crafting richly atmospheric, suspense-filled delights. Other Worlds is an up-all-nighter guaranteed to still haunt in the morning, a tale as chilling by daylight as it is by darkness. Download and start listening now!

Quotes & Awards

  • “Chilling fun.” 

    Cleveland Plain Dealer 

  • “A fun, fast read, spooky in the best Michaels tradition.” 

    Omaha World-Herald

  • “The telling is adept, suspenseful and appropriately spooky. Most readers are likely to echo Houdini’ s opinion that the replay of the hauntings, though still shrouded in ambiguity, makes for ‘an entertaining evening.’” 

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Rosenblat brings the stories themselves to life with her incredible sense of timing and ability to capture the hysteria that seizes each cast of characters. After each mystery, Doyle and company analyze clues and offer their own ‘solutions.’ Whether telling the tale itself, or reading the dissection and possible conclusion for each, Rosenblat, through her lively and eloquent reading, will make you a believer.”
