Travel Guide

Halesham Hall, Suffolk

The hall in the novel sounds amazing if not a bit creepy so it’s a shame it’s not real. Four things that the fictional novel has that you really should look for in a manor house wherever and whenver you visit one.

A maze

A stairwell that leads to a secret door


A folly

This is such an atmospheric and wonderful house. It’s got a hallway with a chessboard floor, a strange mural on the wall of a bedroom and some very unsual steps. Wonderfully atmospheric!

Booktrailer Review

A wonderfully atmospheric novel. I so wanted to be inside this hall with its ornate floors, turrets, secret staircases and hallowed halls.

The story is a gripping and twisty one. A father sets his sons a task. Whoever solves the clues found around the house, gets the house and the legacy in the will. That causes the brothers to go to war but nothing is as black and white as it seems.

The present day storyline merged well with the past one and I was immersed into the storyline very quickly. Back and forth I went, dying to know if the game would ever be solved. So much to enjoy with this book! Loved it,#.
