In Down a Dark Hall, Kit Gordy sees Blackwood, towering over its gates, and a wave of fear shivers through her, bringing one word to mind--evil. One of only four girls at this highly exclusive boarding school, Kit realizes she has to make it through at least to winter break. Rumors of Blackwood's hauntings are muffled by the girls' daily routine and the strange surfacing of incredible talents, until Kit and her friends realize the one thing they have in common is ESP. The gothic mansion and its ghostly inhabitants take hold of the students and if Rachel can't keep a clear head... her class will become slaves to the dead!

"Lois Duncan has always been one of my biggest inspirations. I gobbled up her novels in my teens, often reading them again and again and scaring myself over and over. She's a master of suspense, so prepare to be dazzled and spooked! -Sara Shepard, author of the Pretty Little Liars series
"There are a lot of smart authors, and a lot of authors who write reasonably well. Lois Duncan is smart, writes darn good books and is one of the most entertaining authors in America." -Walter Dean Myers, Printz award-winning author of Monster and Dopesick
These new editions are welcome news! Lois Duncan and I go way back and I couldn't be more pleased that her books will now reach a new generation of readers. -Judy Blume, author of Forever and Tiger Eyes
"She knows what you did last summer. And she knows how to find that secret evil in her characters' hearts, evil she turns into throat-clutching suspense in book after book. Does anyone write scarier books than Lois Duncan? I don't think so." -R.L. Stine, author of Goosebumps and Fear Street
"In middle school and high school, I loved Lois Duncan's novels. I still do. I particularly remember Killing Mr. Griffin, which took my breath away. I couldn't quite believe a writer could DO that.
