Footsteps in the Dark (Paperback)Georgette Heyer (author)
- 10+ in stock
The Priory may look ramshackle in appearance, but Peter, Margaret, and Celia, are totally charmed by their newly-inherited country house.
But there's more to The Priory than meets the eye.
Left empty for years, hardly a single person has set foot inside and, down in the village, the locals whisper of a ghostly figure that roams the halls . . .
When a murder is committed, the new owners start to fear the rumours are true - but is their new home really haunted, or is someone trying to scare them away?
Dark secrets, an unexplained death and an old country house lie at the heart of Georgette Heyer's classic murder mystery.
