John Dickson Carr: Scandal at High Chimneys

Scandal at High Chimneys was published by Bantam in July 1968 and is a mystery/horror by well known author John Dickson Carr. In a Victorian mansion, two females live but one is the embodiment of pure evil.

Allan Kass illustrates our heroine fleeing the haunted mansion. I like the sea of green which gives it an eery look along with the tree branches reaching out like fingers to grab the heroine. Note Allan's signature under her hand, otherwise I'd have had a problem believing this was a Kass cover!

  1. This cover would make a terrific addition to the 'Women Running From Houses' blog, dedicated to this particular niche in the gothic romance genre. The blog itself has been inactive for quite a while now, but check it out regardless, you might find much of interest to you there.
