What you need to know before your trail

Reeling from the death of her fiancé, Stella Marcham welcomes the opportunity to stay with her pregnant sister, Madeleine, at her imposing country mansion, Greyswick – but she arrives to discover a house of unease and her sister gripped by fear and suspicion.

Before long, strange incidents begin to trouble Stella – sobbing in the night, little footsteps on the stairs – and as events escalate, she finds herself drawn to the tragic history of the house.

Aided by a wounded war veteran, Stella sets about uncovering Greyswick’s dark and terrible secrets – secrets the dead whisper from the other side…

Travel Guide

Enter Greyswick  and Haverton Hall if you dare

Fictional house and village (although there is a small village called Wick in Scotland) The houses on the map give a gothic selection to visit.

If you love a gothic mystery set in an old manor house with more secrets than anywhere you have ever known, then this is the manor and novel for you. Set in the lush green English countryside, this house is dark, creaky and cold. Sounds of a baby crying can be heard at night, yet there is no baby in the house, doors open and shut seemingly on their own, items disappear…..and then powder is put on the floor to capture any strange footprints…

This is SUCH a creepy and chilling mansion. Those who live in the house barely talk about what is going on, not everyone says they hear the sounds, but you can cut the tension with a knife. There is something, someone here and they are trying to get a message to those living here. Something tragic, something wrong happened in that house and there is a sense of evil and wrongdoing in the air.

Creep along the corridors, mind the creaking stairs, cover your ears at night and watch for the flicker of the burning candles….

And be especially careful when you go up to the landing…..that’s if you dare go up at all…

This is a brilliantly evoked ghostly mystery in a superbly atmospheric gothic house. So well evoked and characters come alive off the page.
