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 best-selling author and unsurpassed master of suspense Barbara Michaels delivers a fireside story in the grand tradition with 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.

    " This book read like an essay that you would write for school. The grammer was very proper and there was very little dialog. Life's too short to waste on a book you don't like, so I didn't finish it. "

    " This book was a waste of time. It didn't tell a good story, and I didn't really learn anything while reading it. I can't believe I read the whole thing. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Barbara ★ | 10/17/2011

    " I found this extremely tedious and boring. It reads more like a text book example of poltergeist behavior rather than a novel. Unless you're an academic-type, pass this one up. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Helen | 9/27/2011

    " tepid retelling of the Bell Witch & another poltergeist tale, pointless "

    " I appreciate that Michaels was trying something different with this novel (which is basically a gathering of Harry Houdini, Arthur Conan Doyle, and some other people telling stories), but it just didn't work. The book as whole didn't feel cohesive. "

    " I did not find this book as satisfying as her other novels. The language seemed forced and the story never built to a satifying conclusion. Its not bad, it's just not excellent. "
