The Shadow Hunter
The Shadow Hunter, originally published in 1887, is a long-forgotten supernatural horror novel set in the remote Yorkshire Moors. The story is told by the young Tryphena Sabine who rejects the marrage proposals of the menacing villain Reginald Jarrald, but later unexpectedly inherits his spooky mansion Tanglewood, where grim and gory hauntings take place.
The author J.E. Muddock (1843-1934) became very well known under his pseudonym ‘Dick Donovan’, producing a large number of popular detective stories in the 1890s and 1900s.
