The Ghost Girl by Henry Kitchell Webster (1875 - 1932).

All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/the-ghost-girl-by-henry-kitchell-webster/
Henry Kitchell Webster is an American author best know for his detective novels. The Ghost Girl opens with a murder mystery. A young woman's frozen, yet perfectly preserved, body is found in the river. As the family discusses this news of the day, good friend Jeffrey returns from a sabbatical, suddenly undertaken after finishing a commission to paint the portrait of a dead girl. The mystery deepens as the chapters progress and Jeffrey and Drew investigate as the haunting coincidences begin to pile up. ( Kate Follis)

    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

I love to read, AND my employer matches my volunteer hours with a donation to the Internet Archive, flagged to benefit Librivox.org. How cool is that?

MW to follow.

I've taken the liberty of listing myself a dpl. The author is/was local. If you have someone else in mind I can easily change it. Let me know if anything needs fixing in the MW. When you update the book summary let me know so I can change the copy that will be used when the book is catalogued. ID3 tags are automatically generated from the MW during cataloguing so you don't need to worry about them.

This is perfect, Dave. Happy to have you on board.

We'll stay on the "Launch Pad" for a day or two before moving to the "Going Solo" forum. Now I need to learn more about the author.

Both Wikipedia and IMDb are rather sparse when it comes to the bio. I discovered this author/book while reading a section for the Mentor 2, Makers of American Fiction - Men. Even that is a passing mention ("It is now almost twenty years since Henry Kitchell Webster and Samuel Merwin began their writing careers in collaboration. Together they wrote “The Short Line War” (1899), “Calumet K” and “Comrade John.” All these were well-told tales, and the later years, when each man has been working alone, have shown that neither one carried an undue share of the burden. Mr. Webster’s books include “The Whispering Man,” “A King in Khaki,” “The Ghost Girl,” “The Butterfly” and “The Real Adventure.”) Apparently "Calumet K" was the favorite book of Ayn Rand. Honestly, I was just intrigued by the title of this story, but when putting together the project notes, found it referenced in a blog discussing best books about séances where it was described as ridiculously scarce but one of the best of its genre. I read the opening paragraph and just knew I had to record it.

And here's where I discover that these are recurring characters, having previously appeared in "The Whispering Man." I'll have to try to hunt that down when I'm done with this one.
