Description

The thrilling new novel from the acclaimed author of Murder on Mustique, based on the childhood described in her international bestseller Lady in Waiting.

January 1950. Lady Anne Coke, daughter of the 5th Earl of Leicester, is in Scunthorpe on a business trip when she is called home after a sudden death in the family. She returns to Holkham Hall to discover a mystery: her beloved grandfather has been found dead at the bottom of a flight of stairs with a valuable piece of jewellery in his pocket. No one can find a cause of death, and some even suspect foul play from the ghost who supposedly haunts the house. But Anne's suspicions are aroused; she grew close to her grandfather when they lived together during the war and she is determined to discover the truth.


During World War II, Holkham Hall was an army base with large sections out of bounds, and 11-year-old Anne was in the care of a new governess, whom she hated and believed to be deceitful. Although she had been told to stay away from certain parts of the house, Anne used the secret passageways and the cellars to move around unnoticed. And something she saw then could unlock the mystery of her grandfather's death now ...

Full of rich historical detail, this is a gripping novel of wartime secrets, intrigue and deceit.

What an Epic read! Anne’s grandfather is found dead at the bottom of the stairs... Resident ghost, Lady Mary, is to be blamed... Is there a connection between Miss Lavender Crane and fake family jewellery? And why has a certain local person not been seen for days? Anne is determined to find out the truth behind her grandfathers death. I live not far from Holkham, and after this epic read, I’d love to visit
