Practically all of Crispin's novels (humorous detective stories about the eccentric Gervase Fen) have Jamesian elements, and at least one of them has a complete ghost story in it (I forget which one, though).
From the first, I set myself against "literature"; the story was the thing, and no amount of style could persuade me to select a story that lacked genuine, unadulterated horror. For those who wanted something high-brow there was plenty.
The Fen with the Jamesian short inserted is either Holy Terrors or The Case Of The Gilded Fly - Craig knows for certain. I can't remember off-hand and can't check as not at home. There's a Crispin thread in the crime section here that covers this. I love Fen, but not remembering exactly has made me realise it's far too long since I revisited Fen country.
