The Frightened Ones, by Melba Marlett (epub/Kindle/pdf)
An exercise in fear, as a killer makes a bold prison escape, then takes refuge on a farm -- only to change forever the lives he threatens...
In the 1940s and 1950s, Melba Marlett (1909-1994) gained wide distinction as an author of mystery novels, plays, and in the general field of literature and education. Three of her most popular books are Escape While I Can (1944), Tomorrow Will Be Monday (1946), and Death Is in the Garden (1951).
Regarding her writing career she once said, “In spite of seven published books, there are times when I am in despair about my writing. Then, in order to cheer myself up, I look myself up in various reference books. There it says I am a writer.”
Wildside Press is working with her family to reprint all of her classic works.
