Maurice Level (1875-1926) - French novelist and short story writer connected with the theater of the Grand Guignol

Those Who Return by Maurice Level (1875 - 1926) is a psychological thriller, a gripping page-turner, a tale of hysteria, madness, revenge and bizarre deaths in the contes cruel tradition of nineteenth century French literature. This short novel is told in crisp, sparse language yet contains elements of romanticism (the feelings and sensitivity of a passionate, poetic main character)

In terms of plot, this could be tighter, but it's still a sharp conte cruel portrait of descending madness at a mysterious old French country house and the protagonist's possible (but ambiguous) confrontation with the supernatural and unseen tormentors (natural or otherwise). The conclusion's about as luridly bloody as you might have hoped for from a writer who was beloved by the Grand Guignol's management.
