Or should that say 8 Days Until Halloween?  Both are correct, as Outskirts Press provides you with eight different books to enjoy, starting today, to tide you through All Hallows Eve!

Since Halloween is almost here, it is the perfect opportunity to curl up with a good (scary) book. Readers of all ages love getting that chill up their spine this time of year, reading mysteries and thrillers as bare branches blow in the wind and strange noises make the mind soar with what could be lurking in the shadows.

At Outskirts Press, we want you to enjoy this spooky time of the year! That’s why we’re providing you with a list of books that offer good Halloween fun:

For Monday, October 24th…

Non-fiction readers will love The World’s Most Haunted Sites which explores the history, legends, and ghostly happenings at the world’s most fascinating spectral landmarks. While researching this book, Mr. Bell visited more than 200 ghostly points of interest to find those which seemed the most authentically haunted. He interviewed historians, psychics, ghost-hunters and hundreds of people who believe they have encountered supernatural activity.

For Tuesday, October 25th…

When NYPD Detective Lieutenant Walter Hudson’s wife, Sarah, unexpectedly inherits a family farm in the tiny upstate village of Dutch River, New York, their first thought is to sell it as soon as possible. But they are immediately charmed by the village and its residents, and Sarah’s great-uncle, Armin Jaeger, leaves them a letter too puzzling to ignore. They are soon stunned to find that Sarah has been left more than a simple farmhouse in a quaint village; and matters turn even more intriguing when Walter discovers a mysterious connection between Dutch River and the murder of a prominent Boston philanthropist, Charles Martin Sewall. And matters take an even more deadly turn when Walter’s family is threatened. Walter will need all his skills and all the help he can get from his good friend, Leviticus Welles, as he desperately races against time not just to solve a hideous crime but to save his family as well. It’s a race he can’t afford to lose.

Catch up with Detective Lieutenant Walter Hudson once again and this time, he is in over his head (and he knows it!). As he begins to receive intense pressure to solve a new case from both Mayor Deborah Kaplan and Police Commissioner Sean Donahue, a judge’s beautiful daughter starts giving him more help than he’s looking for. He’ll need all the help he can get from Leviticus Welles, now a rising star in the NYPD’s Intelligence Division, to guide him through the maze of Teddy Braxton’s life as well as the tangle of his own emotions. But one thing Walter knows from the start is that there’s nothing placid at all about Placid Hollow.
