    "The Port of Missing Men" is a thriller by Meredith Nicholson. Excerpt from the book: "The knowledge that you're alive gives me no pleasure," growled the grim old Austrian premier. "Thank you!" laughed John Armitage, to whom he had spoken. "You have lost none of your old amiability; but for a renowned diplomat, you are remarkably frank. When I called on you in Paris, a year ago, I was able to render you - I believe you admitted it - a slight service."

    "The House of a Thousand Candles" (1905) by Meredith Nicholson is a fast-paced novel, well composed to sustain attention. The main actor is a bad tempered young man, who inherits a fortune from his grandfather - suspended for a year of probation. The fellow finds out upon returning to a city of the fictional Indiana County that the old man died, and in his will he stated that the heir must live in his (haunted) house for a year - without leaving it.
