Pauline's Passion and Punishment (Dodo Press) - Louisa May Alcott A quick little tale of revenge, a morality play where the innocent are despoiled by the malevolent compulsions of the impure. Alcott wrote several of these "pulps," which she referred to as "blood and thunder tales," for the National Enquirer-esque newspapers of her day. They were melodramatic psychothrillers, although in keeping with mid-19th century sensibilities seem somewhat tame by today's standards. You can find this one for free through Project Gutenberg.
