“This reissue of Gaston Leroux’s The Phantom of the Opera is the first title in The Haunted Library, a new horror classics series presented by the Horror Writers Association and Poisoned Pen Press, an imprint of Sourcebooks. The award-winning musical based on Leroux’s work is world-famous, but many people are unaware that the show was inspired by a novel, originally published in a serialized form. The Phantom of the Opera is a timeless piece of gothic horror that invites the reader into the dark world of obsession beneath the Palais Garnier opera house and reveals the secrets of the masked man who lives there. An introduction by Bram Stoker Award-winning author Nancy Holder and in-depth annotations will bring this epic love story to life for today’s readers”–

But when her voice fails her, La Carlotta is replaced with unknown understudy Christine DaaĆ©, a young soprano whose vibrant singing fills every corner of the house and wins her a slew of admirers, including an old childhood friend who soon professes his love for her. But unknown to Christine is another man, who lurks out of sight behind the heavy curtains of the opera, who can move about the building undetected, who will do anything to make sure Christine will keep singing just for him…
